About the Publications

Whenever possible, reports are provided in PDF format so that they remain unaltered. Reports and publications with large file sizes have been broken into smaller files and will have an introductory page listing the components. CLIR does not provide software for looking at any file types. To view PDF's, users will need to download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader from the Adobe web site by clicking the Download Adobe Acrobat hyperlink in the left menu. Similarly, to view other file formats, such as .jpg, it is expected that users have image or photo viewing software.
