A Research Tip

  • Research & Writing

I love my iPad. One reason is for its ability to carry heavy things for me, like extra novels when I travel, my CDs, and my copy of the Rules of Court.

No, sorry there is no Rules of Court app. Here are the steps to get a long pdf that is available for public download on to your tablet.

1. Make sure you have a pdf reader (like iBooks, iAnnotate, or Kobo)
2. In your browser, navigate to the public pdf. I used the Alberta Rules link at http://www.qp.alberta.ca/documents/rules2010/Rules_vol_1.pdf
3. Once the full pdf has loaded into your browser, hover over the top of the menu bar until the “Open In” bar appears.
4. Select which of your eReader apps you would like to Save the document in.

That’s it. Rules to travel.
