Many of our presentations include handouts which are posted on this site as Adobe Acrobat files. These files can be read and printed on virtually any platform -- Macintosh, Windows, or Unix. You can download the Acrobat Reader for free from Adobe. For Netscape users, you'll want to use the Acrobat plug-in that makes viewing Acrobat files a snap!

If you have not done so, follow your browser's directions to allow it to recognize and open Adobe Acrobat files. If you need help, you'll find that in the Adobe site as well.
