First match (coolscan rental): http://www.vistek.ca/rentals/rentalequipment.aspx?categoryId=32
But, at $315 a week, you're not saving an awful lot by 2 months.
You'll also go batty trying to do large numbers of scans in a short period of time, it can get tedious very fast.
Also, unless you're planning on 20x30 enlargements, a Nikon Coolscan IV will do. A used US (non-grey-market) one should be pretty affordable by now.
Just think of it as one of the new capital costs, along with Picture Window Pro or Photoshop, a quality monitor, and a monitor calibrator.
