Cool! Did you scan them? I have around 20 of these brown binders in my library, and many of them contains multiple manuals ...

Nope, I'm not associated with bitsavers in any way (besides being an happy supporter and having found gems in there).

Well, all I have is a simple flat bed scanner, so I'm not in a hurry to start scanning them ...

The old SGI manuals are not books but binders, so it's trivial to take the pages out. Some sort of scanner with mechanical sheet feeder should be good enough. Alas, I don't have one. Also, a large part of these old manuals is hardcopy manpages. Probably less work to simply recreate from the installation media.
