Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do I need any special software on my computer to view or download files?
PDF Reader software is required to view, and print PDF files while on the site. Google Chrome, Apple Safari (Mac Only), or Mozilla Firefox have built in PDF Readers. Each reader is proprietary and unique to each browser.
If you want Adobe Reader to be used as the default reader in the browser you use, please use one of the following outside resources. Adobe Reader Help for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer.

Enter a search term or terms into the search box and click the "Search" button (may be a magnify glass).
The search results will include the following information: Title of file matching search result; Snippet of text that includes highlighted text that matches your search terms
On the search results page some sites will have the option to narrow your search results.
The search engine will ignore parentheses in the search term. To search for a term such as 401(k), you can search for "401 K" to find every instance of 401(k) in the site. You can also search for 401 k, but you will get every instance of 401 and k on a page which may cause you to get more results.
