Acrobat is a good way to go. Each tiff file can be made into a PDF then put
together into one PDF file with Acrobat Exchange. If these are strictly
B&W is she saving them in bitmap (B&W) mode?
Adobe also makes a cool conversion software called Capture, but only for
the PC and it is very expensive ($895). It will convert images to text and
insert images of text where it is not sure of what the text is, thus
preserving the document content without editing.
