Adobe PDF is a file format which saves existing
documents with all their original formatting. This means that when you look
at a PDF document you will see the formatting and layout that the author
intended, even if you do not have the program they were originally created in.
In order to view PDF documents, you will need
to have the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software installed on your computer.
Adobe Acrobat Reader
On the Adobe web site, make sure that you choose
the right options in the drop-down boxes before you download (e.g. Windows
XP for your operating system). Make a note of where you are downloading the
installation file to (e.g your desktop). After the download has completed,
locate the installation file on your computer and double click on it. The
installation programme will do the rest.
Once the Adobe Acrobat Reader software has
been installed you will be able to read Adobe PDF files.
Saving a PDF
To save a PDF to your computer, right-click
your mouse over the PDF link and select ‘save target as’ or ‘save
link as’. If you have an Apple computer, click the link whilst holding
down the ‘option’ key. You can then save the PDF where you want
on your computer.
We recommend that users download the latest
version of Adobe Acrobat Reader to access Adobe PDF files.
Adobe Reader enables users to read and use
Adobe PDF documents and forms more easily – and across multiple languages.

Adobe PDF troubleshooting
I have clicked on the link but my
browser’s just gone blank.
Browsers have different ways of downloading
PDFs. Most will ask you where you would like the file to download on your
machine and show a progress meter as the file downloads. However, some older browsers
load in the PDF page by page and don’t
show a progress meter. In fact, the file is downloading - the first page should
appear after a few moments.
I’ve downloaded the file but
nothing has appeared.
You may need to go to where the file was downloaded
on your local drive (probably your c:/windows/temp directory) and click on
it from there. If it doesn’t work, your Reader is not working properly
and should be reinstalled.
For further troubleshooting suggestions, see Adobe

Social bookmarking is a method for internet users to store, organise and share web page bookmarks on the internet. Unlike storing bookmarks on your computer using the favourites menu, social bookmarking stores your bookmarks on a website such as del.icio.us.
The key advantage of social bookmarking is its public nature. This means your saved bookmarks are not confined to one computer but can be shared with anyone using the internet.
Most social bookmark services encourage users to sort and organise their bookmarks with informal tags. These tags make bookmarks more findable, allowing users to discover new and relevant materials tagged by others on the internet.
