Yes, you can do it with a \url{} macro. Use a relative link, acting as though the starting page is located in /library/AlgDesign/html/*. So \url{../doc/AlgDesign.pdf}
should work from the same package,
\url{../../AlgDesign/doc/AlgDesign.pdf} from elsewhere. Please let me know if this doesn't work, I haven't tested.
