flatbed scanner

A scanner that provides a flat, glass surface to hold a sheet of paper, book or other object for scanning. The scan head is moved under the glass. Flatbed scanners often come with sheet feeders for scanning multiple sheets of paper rather than one at a time. Contrast with "sheet-fed scanner," which accepts only paper, and contrast with handheld scanner and drum scanner.
