Where and how can I access Adobe products at the SFU Library?

Acrobat Reader

Adobe Acrobat Reader is installed on all Library computers, for viewing, printing, and sharing PDFs.

About Acrobat Creative Cloud (Creative Suite)

The Adobe Acrobat Creative Cloud includes programs such as Acrobat Pro, as well as InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, and Photoshop. For a complete list of the applications that are included, see Adobe (SFU IT Services).

  IMPORTANT: Getting started with Adobe Creative Cloud

Note that you will need to set up an Adobe account before you can use Creative Cloud products in the Library or in other SFU computer labs.
