I have newspapers of the Hitler-time before WW2, should I scan them?

Wondering what I could scan tomorrow when I have much time to do that, I found a bunch of newspapers from the mid 1930s. I did  a websearch and found that the nearest university library (of the town where it was edited) has them in its inventory. Now I'm wondering if I should scan it at all as the library has it. What do you folks think?

It probably depends on the quality of the library scan.  Do they scan the whole page or do they just have an index?  If they have good quality scans of the pages already, I don't really see the point.  Unless of course, they are behind a pay wall.  If you can free them to be shared outside a paywall, that would be something.

It seems to me that the papers are only directly in the university library visible and also only regionally by interlibrary loan. The interlending is also only working with copies of the paper. So the availability is quite limited.

You should consider any local laws. German sites seem very sparse in this time period, I did find some local papers online that concerned themselves with very local news and cooking recipes and nothing about politics.
