The document below is in three different formats, Album, Acrobat, and Djvu. Album will be visible by any browser because it consists of picture files (.jpg). For Acrobat you will need Acrobat Reader, and for Djvu you will need to download a plugin for from the link given.

This is the only archived document for which I am providing three different view options, because the work is done and because it is such a good example of its kind.

For the sake of webserver diskspace the other archive documents will be displayed in Djvu format only.
