If you find that organizations such as the RSTCA are allowed to  
duplicate out-of print manuals with no copyright problems, I would be  
willing to help you with the task. I do not have the capability to  
scan multiple pages at once, but can batch scan and convert to pdf. I  
do it every day in my business. Let me know what you find out.

By the way, the site looks great so far!
