Some decent sized office photocopies will scan to pdf at fairly high 
rates. But as someone else said, they pdfs are not searchable.

I think personally I'd be tempted to go  through the mags and rip out 
any pages I think might just be useful. If you do that, along with all 
indexes, you can then have something you can thumb though when you want.

To do a job with OCR software etc it will take you a month of sundays 
(as we say in England).
