In the cases where digital versions of the resources were found and where we had permission from the authors, we have uploaded the PDF version of the resource. For resources without a digitial version or without proper permissions we have only included a description of the content, authors, and place where you can solicit access to the material.
We hope that this work will be useful and interesting for your work.
