Help downloading PDF Files

Instead of immediately displaying the downloaded PDF file in Acrobat Reader, you may wish to save the file to disk.

Any file (image, HTML, PDF, text, etc.) on the web is available for downloading to your local hard disk by right-clicking on the link to the file that you wish to download and choosing "Save Link As" (in Netscape Navigator) or "Save Target As" (in Internet Explorer) and specifying a local path and file name.

For Macintosh - Option-click on the link of the file that you wish to download and specify a local path and file name. Once the file has been downloaded, it is possible to open it locally using the file's local application.

Many of the PDF files on this site are quite large and may take several minutes to download depending on the speed of your internet connection and on how busy the server computer is.
