How to Search Across Multiple PDF Files

Last week, someone asked me if it was possible to search the full text of multiple PDF files in the same folder at one time.  Hmm – good question.  No surprise, our Assistant Director for Public Service, Kris Turner, knew how to do this.

Then today I ran across this post from the South Central Library System’s Tech Bits with step-by-step instructions on how to search within multiple PDF files at once.  Well, that was too serendipitous not to share.  It’s all about the Advanced Search option in Adobe Acrobat Reader.  Very handy.
