When  we scan stuff at  SMECC
it is saved in the following 3  formats  for  each item  scanned.
PDF  with ocr background
and  if   containing a lot  of  text   a  TXT  file as well.
Kind of a shotgun approach... but   should stand  test  of  time?

Multiple single-page TIFFs, in my case.

But  also JPEG's, for pages where the B+W scanning I use (with fax  
to keep the file size down) results in pages that aren't  readable - this
happens on faded pages. Does tiff2pdf handle a bunch of  single-page
TIFF's, with a JPEG or two throw in?
