Good afternoon Ms. Kotler,

Are these all available in PDF format? If so, I'd like to request all of them, please.

If they are not already in electronic format and need to be scanned (meaning my request is too burdensome), please let me know and I'll try to whittle it down.

Thank you for your help.
