The Directory is also completely searchable. In Adobe Reader choose the search icon in the left menu sidebar, "Find" or "Advanced Search" in the Edit drop-down menu, or use Ctrl+F (Right-click\Find).

On tablets and mobile devices the Directory should open in most apps used to view PDF documents, including Adobe Reader mobile apps, web browsers, Kindle or Kindle apps, iBooks (Apple) and Polaris Office (Android) to name a few.

To print a complete Directory (when viewing in Adobe Reader): Be sure to choose "Booklet" under Page Sizing and Handling in the print dialogue as well as "Both Sides" in the Booklet subset dropdown menu. Also make sure the orientation is set to "Portrait" and "Print in greyscale (black and white)" is checked to save ink. The pages can then be cut in half and folded over to create a booklet that will fit in a standard 3-ring binder for 5.5" by 8.5" pages. Click the thumbnail below to see these settings:
