The Internet Archive has 10 minutes of footage of a book scanning robot that would make a perfect backdrop for your story.
Licensing? For some crazy reason they’re offering it for free and have released the footage to the public domain! Maybe when you’re done with the Google story you should look into why someone would give up their copyright like that…
