Adobe Acrobat Reader and PDF Files
Certain files available for download from the NARA web site are in Portable Document Format (PDF). PDF files require the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. Adobe also provides free PDF tools for the visually impaired.
What Are PDF Files?
Portable Document Format (PDF) is a computer file format,
developed by Adobe Systems, Inc., that allows authors to exchange documents among different computer systems, while preserving the documents' typography and page layout.
How do I Get Started?
To read or print a file in PDF format, you must install on your computer the Acrobat Reader program, published by Adobe Systems, Inc. Acrobat Reader is free, and there are no restrictions on its copying or distribution. Acrobat Reader works as a standalone application, or as a plug-in within Netscape Navigator or MS Internet Explorer.
