Here are a couple of suggestions from Nancy Deromedi at the University of Michigan's Bentley Historical Library:

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for meeting with us!  It was great meeting with the three of you and the project sounds very interesting.

 . . .

As far as the formats:
The pdf's you sent are pdf's without embedded fonts.  I tried converting the files to PDF/A but, could not.  If you have Word files of the same documents there might be a chance that a new pdf can be created with embedded fonts.

The jpegs are fine.  If you end up scanning some original material that we might not have we would prefer a higher resolution image and preferably in TIFF format.

Thanks again! 

Nancy Deromedi

And the PDF, Best practices for producing high quality PDF files, has information about creating PDF/A format files.
