I emphatically agree. According to 'highly placed sources', part of
the problem has been trying to decide in what format to store this
However, I would think that simply scanning it at some ridiculous
resolution -- e.g., 600 dpi -- should save virtually all of the
resolution that is available, and any additional processing can be
done downstream. TIFF G4 is a pretty compact format, at least for B/W
only text & pictures.
A few years ago, I called up ACM HQ to ask whether they had copies of
ACM's from the late 1950's, and they said they couldn't find them.
Many of the earlier Sigplan Notices were printed on acid-laced paper,
and have now crumbled to dust in some libraries. We're quickly
running out of time on some of these journals.
