AUSOM News Index

NOTE: Contents of the latest issues of AUSOM News are available here as TEXT so you can search it using an iPhone, iPad or other computer.

The Index on this page is for Mac ONLY and gives you access to the contents of all issues of AUSOM News.
The Index is a searchable index of every issue of AUSOM News published since 1980.

The user can access the Index using the application AUSOM Application.app (available from Download One below).

If you purchased a DVD containing the files the only file you need to replace is AUSOM index.AID so skip to “To Update the Index” – Download Three.

To Obtain the Index

Download the zipped file from Download One below
Unzip it to obtain a folder AUSOM News Index
Drag the folder to an appropriate location on your Mac. You might drag it to your Applications folder since it does contain an app

Open the folder AUSOM News Index and locate the following files:

  • AUSOM application.app
  • AUSOM index.AID
  • Magazines Folder

The Magazines Folder is empty. This is where you should drag all your AUSOM News PDFs. The magazines are available on FirstClass and on our website here. In addition, members are sent an email each month (except January) detailing the availability of the latest version of AUSOM News.
