OAC generates a printable PDF version for finding aid submissions; the "PDF" link will display after the OAC is fully re-indexed, currently every weekend. These versions are linked through the OAC browser display, as shown here:
Finding aids submitted on any given weekday should display the "PDF" link on Monday the following week. In the meantime, this link may temporarily display a “noPDF” label.
Re-submitted finding aids also re-generate updated printable PDFs, which should update after the OAC is fully re-indexed, currently every weekend. In the meantime, this link may temporarily display a PDF of an earlier version of the finding aid.
Potential errors with printable PDFs
We are observing that some finding aids are not generating printable PDF even after a full week has passed (less than 1% of all finding aids in OAC). We have been unable to identify the exact characteristics that may potentially block a printable PDF from generating, but they are generally over 1 MB in size. We are currently investigating solutions or workarounds to address this issue. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this error.
