Some resources on the AU website are distributed in Adobe's PDF format. You will need a copy of the Adobe Acrobat program to display and print these documents. Most machines on the AU campus are already properly equipped. If you are working from home or some other off-campus site and do not have Acrobat on your machine, you can use your browser to obtain a free copy from the Adobe website. Follow the instructions to execute the downloaded file and install the program on your computer. Once installed, the reader will work automatically with your browser to display PDF files, and can also be operated as an independent program to view PDF files already stored on your computer.
