Note: If your library administrator has provided the ability to translate an article, you must print the translated article directly from your browser window.

To print PDF Full Text:

To print an item in PDF full text format, you must use the Adobe Reader Print option. When viewing the PDF document in your browser window, the Adobe Print option (a printer icon) is included on the Adobe Reader toolbar located above the article. Note that if the item includes a citation and/or HTML text, they will print from the browser window.

To print Linked Full Text:

If the results include linked full text, the linked full text cannot be delivered via the folder. If you are printing an article that includes linked full text, you must follow the links directly to the full text and then print. If the article includes a citation and/or HTML full text, they will print from the browser window, but you will still need to follow the links directly to the Full Text and then print.
