> My question is this. Would it be better to link from the brochure libraries to the appropriate program content in the website rather than duplicate the text of the brochure as a separate document? In my opinion the website content is more thorough and much easier to navigate than the text transcript of the brochure or the PDF would be if it were made accessible.

I'n not sure why you think the PDF wouldn't be easy to navigate. Ensure the tags meet best-practice standards (include appropriate headings, etc), and it would be precisely as navigable as HTNL.
