They're printed on a non-standard oversize (9" by 12") page format and have 26 weekly issues in each volume...over 1000 pages; very hard to open flat. I've had some success with using the book scanner at one of the local universities, but I'd be interested in acquiring my own scanner for these and other volumes if I can do so at a reasonable cost (roughly $500 or less). Any recommendations?

Scanning is fairly fast, and one feature that I find especially useful is that it can automatically convert a two-page scan into two separate pages. It can also produce OCRed PDFs, but I use Acrobat to OCR the PDFs it produces. It's also handy for scanning large documents bigger than A4.

I have an old version of Acrobat Pro 10, which fortunately still works on Mojave. By way of experiment, I just scanned something and created a searchable PDF with the CZUR software. There seems to be little difference with the searchable PDF created by Acrobat, and there is no pixelation when enlarging the text. But whether it would meet professional requirements I don't know.
