Seeking help OCR-ing a large number of TIF images

I've received a collection of about 2,500 scans of pages of often-obscure academic articles mentioning the Babi or Baha'i religions, ranging from 1870 through the present. All images are in uncompressed TIF format at 300ppi, ideal for OCRing.

I'm seeking assistance doing rough, uncorrected text extraction of the files. No formatting or proofreading will be required. I will post the uncorrect text file plus GIF images of the files online, and let future volunteers tackle the slow process of proofing and formatting them.

If you can help by OCRing a few of these articles, email me!

Thanks, -Jonah
