There is a Un-Du Photo Care Kit that has solution for cleaning both the 
fronts of old pictures and glue residue.  I would check with something like 
that.  Probably the scanning is a good idea anyway.  If you do a google 
search for "un du adhesive remover" there are multiple stes where you can 
get it.  I got it through a photo company years back.
