Hundreds of experiments over the last decade on the retrieval of OCR documents performed by the Information Science Research Institute have shown that OCR errors do not significantly affect retrievability. We extend those results to show that in the case of proximity searching, the removal of running headers and footers from OCR text will not improve retrievability for such searches.
