PDF checklist for web editors

Please make sure that you follow this checklist when adding a document to the website:

  • question whether the content needs to be a PDF, following the rules outlined in our standards
  • present documents appropriately on the page – consider the importance of the document to the content
  • the maximum file size in the system is 15MB but as a general rule documents should not be more than 2MB – please optimize the PDF for the web before publishing
  • every PDF file must show the size of the file on the page from which it is downloaded
  • PDF files must be named using lower case letters with hyphens separating words
  • document properties should be set appropriately
  • all documents must meet accessibility requirements
