Digital Bookclip

The described embodiments present a system and method for obtaining a portion of a digital document from a printed version of the document. Locations where a smart pen device interacts with a digital bookclip aligned relative the printed document are identified via coordinate sets. A digital document associated with the printed document and the coordinate sets from the smart pen device and digital bookclip are used to identify locations in the digital documents corresponding to locations in the printed document. Data from the identified locations in the digital documents is retrieved and presented to a user and can then be copied, saved, mailed electronically, and/or printed to a new paper document.
