Chapter 12. Assembling a Library

Chapter 12. Assembling a Library

Suppose you have thousands of historical documents that have been converted to PDF for safekeeping and storage, and suppose further that you need to search for specific information in those files regularly. Although you can hunt for content in the whole collection by using Acrobat’s Search feature, the search process can be quite lengthy, as you can imagine. Repeatedly having to choose search terms and then waiting isn’t anyone’s idea of a good time. Now suppose there was a way to shorten that waiting time considerably. Wouldn’t that be a good thing? Nod your head in agreement, and read on.

One way of managing documents using Acrobat 7 Professional is through its Catalog feature. Cataloging is the process of assembling a collection of documents and indexing it to create a formal catalog. Using PDF documents as the basis for maintaining and storing collections of business-critical and historical documents allows you to do full-text searches of content with the two search functions that are part of the Acrobat program and Adobe Reader. You can use both the Find and Search features, as you’ll see in this chapter.
