A large collection of microfiche scanned and soon to
be available - I think I'll pinch myself and come
back later to see if I need to pich myself harder :-)

Obviously the value would be greatly enhanced if
we could knock up an index (document title or
part number, where it starts, where it ends) and
better yet if individual docs could be pulled
out into separate pdfs.

This would obviously take quite a bit of time,
but perhaps we could organise ourselves and
come up with a way of distributing the work.
I think Project Gutenberg have a scheme for
proof-reading where you basically offer to
proof-read something (or a part of something)
and there is some scheme for keeping track of
which bits are done and which bits still need
to be done.

Do we have enough computer experience between us
to pull this off? :-)
