A Guide to Copyholders
What is a copyholder?
A copyholder, or copy stand, is a document holder on which a document can be mounted and displayed for typing and reference. Copyholders can stand independently on your desktop or can be attached to your desktop with a table clamp or to your computer monitor.
Why might I need a copyholder?
If you need to reference a document for typing, say, it is a lot more comfortable for you if the document is mounted at eye level and this is what a copyholder, or copy stand, does. The document is clasped to the copyholder in a similar fashion to a clipboard and the copyholder is placed in a suitable position. This is an ergonomic solution to consulting documents – there is no need to strain your neck by constantly turning your head. The document is always open on the page you require to reference, leaving your hands free for typing. A copyholder thus increases your productivity and also reduce clutter on your desktop.
