That may require purchasing, trading or extensive hunting around, but it is by far a bigger and better contribution.

So going back to this. I just got a book on calculus with the 28s and 48s(x) from ebay. Is it worth scanning? I'll have to cut the spine or if someone has one of those fancy ^ scanners I could send it to?

IMHO, any book that uses HP machines to explore or teach math, engineering or any other topic is of interest to the community and would be appreciated by many users, however before scanning and sharing an entire work, you must contact the author and get permission, which is only very rarely refused, due to age of the book/publication.

If the author is deceased or cannot be contacted after serious attempts have been made, what is often done is to share the work, including a statement that if the copyright holder objects to such sharing, upon notification, such sharing will be halted and the shared copy removed. IANAL, so can't comment on the legal validity of this approach, but I have seen it used many times, in many places and contexts.

If you plan to contribute it to MoHPC to be added to the Document Collection, I suggest you should contact Dave Hicks to clarify the criteria and procedures for such a contribution before you scan it, as doing so is a lot of work and best to know if it can be shared before that long task.
