Downloading .PDF Files

The files on this web site that are available for download/viewing are stored in the Adobe Acrobat (.PDF) format. To view the files with the Adobe Acrobat Reader, follow these step-by-step instructions:

  1. Download the Acrobat Reader appropriate to your computer system (Macintosh or Windows). Links to download the appropriate reader are provided below.
  2. If your web browser does not automatically expand downloaded files, you may need to use an expander utility to install the Adobe Acrobat Reader file.
  3. Locate the downloaded file on your hard drive and click on it to install the reader.
    • For Macintosh, you may need to click on the .hqx reader file you download from the Adobe site in order to create the ACROREAD.MAC installer file. Once the ACROREAD.MAC file is created, click on it to install Acrobat Reader.
    • Windows automatically downloads the reader program. In Windows, click on ACROREAD.EXE to install the Acrobat Reader.
  4. Open the Acrobat Reader to view and print any files obtained from this site.
  5. Depending on your printer, you may need to reduce the size of the pages in order for it to fit on an 8 1/2" X 11" piece of paper. Remember, a high-quality laser, ink-jet, or bubble-jet printer is needed to print usable copies of the file. Some higher quality dot matrix printers may also work.
