How best to digitize old documents, photos and clippings?

I'm looking into the options for getting a sports club archive online. The archive consists of a couple of thousand documents, photos and newspaper clippings, stretching back a few decades. They are currently held in loose leaf folders, each item pasted onto an A4 page. I have a scanner and could scan them all, but am wondering if there is a better solution, as this would take a lot of time. They won't go through a feeder without damage. [more inside]

Best practices for photo archive scanning?

I'm embarking on the task of archiving my family's collection of several thousand images, from prints, negatives of all sizes, slides and the odd tinplate. I've got what I feel is a good film/slide scanner (Nikon SuperCoolscan 9000 ED) and a half-decent flatbed scanner (Epson Perfection 1650 Photo), and I'm using VueScan on Mac OS X. I've read some of the other AskMeFi posts on similar projects, and I still have three questions about advice for making these the best digital archives they can be, specifically on colorspace, calibration and large negatives (and any other advice welcome): [more inside]
