Scanning docs for bitsavers

I am going through stuff in my office and found that I have some SCSI 
device docs that aren't on bitsavers. As far as multi-page documents, it 
seems as if my scanner (or its software) only does uncompressed TIFF. At 
bitsaver's recommended 400 dpi, that means about 4M per page.

What should I do? Scan the docs in and find a tool to convert to 
lossless compression. Scan the docs in and just submit the huge files? 
Something else?

The docs that I have are copies, not originals. Does anyone here want 
them after I scan them?
