This seems to be created using a program, maybe Adobe Acrobat?

Look at

Starting from page 56 (at the bottom), you can see that the blue bullet points for the references are clickable. I have seen this exact same formatting for another academic at another university, so I believe it's a common software.

Does anyone know what the software to make these nicely formatted bullets are?

Have you tried looking at LateX and Acrobat, the usual suspects? – Daniel Beck Dec 5 '12 at 17:35
The blue bullet characters don't do anything for me when I click them, but they do change from blue to orange as I mouse over them. They act like clickable links for you? Do they open a browser page? – Nicole Hamilton Dec 5 '12 at 17:41
The PDF's properties say that it was created using Atypon's PDF Plus solution. – Karan Dec 5 '12 at 17:43

Links in PDF files can be created using the hyperref package for LaTeX, which also enables internal links for references, the index etc.
