Adobe Document Cloud (eSIGN)

Adobe Document Cloud eSign services (formerly EchoSign) allows faculty and staff to electronically sign documents, send documents to others for signatures, track documents, and get instant e-signatures with in-person signing. Only users creating (or Originating) documents that need electronic signatures will need access. Signers do not need access to this system in order to sign documents. Learn more.


Library Resources Joins Digital Toolkit

The Instructional Services team at the Pace Library recently collaborated with Academic Technologies to create a new Library Resources area within the Digital Toolkit. This section includes instructional videos, information on how to create Course Reserves, FAQs, faculty resources, and more. Visitors can also submit questions or use the embedded live-chat feature to connect with a librarian. The Digital Toolkit is a one-stop, self-help center where students and faculty can learn about technologies supported at Pace.
