Downloading Aussie Bee Online Articles
For full instructions on how to do this, click here.
Each article is offered in the normal webpage format (HTML format) and, in addition, as a PDF file.
PDF files provide a very compact, attractive layout similar to Aussie Bee bulletin. The photographs in the PDF files are also provided at much higher resolution than those in the HTML versions. PDF files can be read by both Windows and Macintosh computers. Most of our PDF files are only 200 to 500K in size and are quick to download. However, you will need a copy of Adobe Reader to read PDF files.
We have also provided an HTML version of each article in case you are in a situation where you cannot easily download a PDF file (such as if you are using a computer in a public library). You may also like to use the HTML version to take a quick look at each article before you download the PDF version.
Printing Out Aussie Bee Online Articles
We hope you will print out copies of these articles and keep them in a ring-backed binder. They will build up, year by year, into a substantial new addition to your native bee library. We have even provided a splendid, full colour cover page in PDF format to decorate the front of your binder.
You are welcome to print out as many copies as you wish of the Aussie Bee Online cover page and articles to share with your friends. You may also email them to friends or host them on other websites. However, the cover page and all articles must be kept in their full and unaltered version including ANBRC contact details.
