I know in the local museum here when they did a project similar, they purchased a used medium format camera ($$$$) for the job. It was somewhere in the magnitude of $15 or $16 thousand dollars.

That is a lot of money for people to "chip in" but on the other hand, when dealing with document preservation, the ability to capture fine details is usually very important.
