If you are a student using a laptop given to you by UoN you will have access to Adobe Reader already. It's also called Adobe Read or Adobe Acrobat Reader. This also applies to staff using a laptop given to you for work use by IT. All laptops available to borrow for students or staff, short or long term, will also have Adobe Reader.

If you are using your own PC, tablet or phone you may need to download Adobe Reader. The free version should be fine for these purposes. Or you can borrow a UoN laptop from a laptop locker.

Unfortunately, DRM Lite works only with Adobe Reader 10 or above, and documents will not open with any other PDF viewer.
