May I ask for a BCGS handout or form in another format?

I don’t like PDF files or they’re not easily accessible for me. May I have a copy of one of the BCGS handouts or a BCGS form in another format, for example, in Microsoft Word or in Open Office or Office Libre?

Answer: In most cases, yes. Just e-mail the BCGS webmaster to inquire. However, in some cases, especially for handouts, an author may have authorized use of only one format. (And remember that most BCGS handouts and informational documents are copyright BCGS or copyright the individual author.)
