I have a sheet-feed scanner which scans in each page for me, and also some *excellent* OCR software that generates text associated with each page that is used in part of the AcornSearch engine.

Unfortunately with lots of people scanning stuff in you will get lots of variants of quality of document, as well as (more than likely) badly OCR'rd in text. (The high-end software I have access too recognises irregularly formatted text, images, and columnated/tabled text which is damn useful.

The first 49 pages were only as a demonstration, but now permission has been given I can get on with scanning the remaining 40+ magazines.

Server space is irrelevant :-)

Be patient, more magazines will arrive soon. -- Ian Hawkins (g0tai)
