  •   Download Options

    • This mechanism provides a number of options for acquiring the current document in a number of formats. There may be times where a publication is so often used that you will want a copy of your own for frequent access or local printing. In this case you may want to download the document in PDF format. If you need the actual text, we also provide the UNFORMATTED text derived from the document images via OCR processing. If you want a copy that you can search on your own machine, you may want to try the Multi-page TIFF download, as this format will lend itself well to OCR processing.

      Be Warned!
      Each document page is typically about 50-80kb. Downloading a large document on a dialup connection could be a lengthy process.
