Note: When the results list is generated in response to this control, the terms selected will appear at the top of the list. If the results list is too small, try copying the terms for a new search but eliminate any that seem too restrictive. To further restrict a large results list, try using the Search Cloud feature available in the results list display.

The NEPIS system will provide the current document packaged as a Multipage TIFF in a new window. This format can be useful if you have Microsoft's document imaging, as that application can OCR the document delivered, making it searchable without using the NEPIS system.
The NEPIS system will provide the current document packaged as a PDF in a new window. Some PDFs are documents that were created in that format, others were created from the scanned images you see displayed online. Of this later type, some have been created in advance to expedite delivery, others are created at the time they are requested. If the one you request fits this last category, please be patient, as it may take several minutes for our servers to collect, package, format, and deliver the resulting document. The larger the document (either because of a large number of pages or color content) the longer the delivery time.
The NEPIS system will provide the full text of the document as seen by our OCR engine. Sometimes useful if you wish to access the text for 'cut and paste' references.
