A document scanning area only requires enough space for easy access to the boxes of files that are to be prepared for scanning and a work surface. On the work table, files are opened, staples and paper clips are removed, and small pages are taped to regular sized sheets. The work area should also include a copier for delicate or fragile papers, or to copy documents or pages when originals are on colored paper. An additional table should hold the papers that have their identifying bar code divider and are ready to be scanned.

At the scanner, a jogger box is useful to be certain that all loose papers are in line and can be easily fed into the scanner tray. Another table is needed to make sure that all pages have been scanned completely and to review for other quality checks. When papers need to be returned to the original file, this is the best area to complete that operation.
