Hi Asaf, As you can imagine, none of this is available in digital form. I'm planning to prepare high-res pdfs for some of the rare works myself, and get the help of the A2K-CIS people for the rest of it. Of course this is just the first part of the story. We'd have to get volunteers on KN-Wiki - or students enrolled in wiki education programmes - to prepare searchable digital versions from the pdfs. If you have other suggestions, we'd be happy to hear them.
