Going through OCR sounds like a lot of unnecessary trouble, unless it results in a smaller file size for some reason (I hope a PDF expert can answer that one). But an even bigger question is, does your dad have permission from the copyright holder to put these materials online???

My dad is a college professor and he wants to scan about 20 pages from a
book to put online for his students. He was told that he should scan and
then run it through OCR and save it to a WP and then out to PDF. I would
have gone straight from the scan image to PDF. What do you think and why?
