Downloading Documents and Marked Items

You can download a PDF version of the content you find in this database as a file to be saved on your computer, a USB flash drive, or to a disk by clicking the Download tool Download from the Page View screen. Alternatively, you can download citation information for multiple works at once from your Marked Items List.

Downloading the Content as a PDF File from the Page View Screen

You can download a Portable Document Format (PDF) file of a document for viewing or printing with AcrobatTM Reader, a free application available from Adobe Systems.

You may download as a PDF file a single page, multiple pages, or the entire work when the page count of the work is 250 pages or less. Here's how:

  1. When you are viewing a work on the Page View screen, click the Download Download tool on the page toolbar
  2. The Download options page will be displayed in a separate pop-up window
  3. Select if you want to download as a PDF the current page, multiple pages, or when available, the entire work (details explained below)
  4. Click Download
  5. Your browser will display options for saving/opening the file

The system will name the file "Downloaded Document" by default, using the .pdf file extension.

The Cancel button closes the Download window without any action being taken.

Note: You can download up to 250 page images at a time. This will accommodate a vast majority of the works in this database through a single download. For larger works, you will need to make separate downloads, each indicating the required page ranges. For example, for a work with 392 page images, download the first 250 pages, and then as a second download, request pages 251-392.

Note: Page numbers represent the actual page images displayed and often do not correspond to the page numbers originally printed in the document.
