Drop-In Session: Annotating PDF

The library recently hosted a drop-in session about annotating PDF files, facilitated by Consulting Librarian, Meghan Dowell. During the session Meghan shared how it is possible to annotate PDF files. This has so many applications from grading to taking notes to collaboration. Adding sticky notes, highlighting text, attaching documents and recording audio and more are possible with a free application. What is it you may ask? Your friendly neighborhood Adobe Reader.


Below are some examples of the annotation tasks you can accomplish with Adobe Reader. (Click a thumbnail to see the full image.)
