That's a Hackerspace scanner (Carles seems to have The Archivist one, which
has some differences).
I'm part of the DIY Book Scanner project, so if you have any feedback over
why the project didn't work, it would be more than interesting to hear it.
Maybe you also want to check out the new software that has been released to
control the cameras: https://github.com/Tenrec-Builders/pi-scan
It works for more camertas than the Powershot IXUS160, it depends a lot of
how the CHDK was build, but right now I know that there are some other
projects that has tested the PiScan with other models of cameras and it
works pretty well. Using PiScan in combination with the MarkersCrop:
makes a lot of the workflow
I'm also more than happy to provide some help on how to make a decent
software workflow for the BS. I know this tends to be a major bottleneck
(specially if you are using Linux and the library is used to work with
Windows), but it can be sorted it out.

Thanks for the proposal but Wikimédia France already has one (is it the
same ? https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Book_scanners_
of_Wikimedia_France ) that is not often used (indeed it needs some tech
skills and time).
I don't recall if Wikimedia CH already has one or is currently
buying/building one (I know it was discuss). Yann: can you tell us?
