Printing Documents and Marked Items

You may print the current page image, multiple pages, and when available, the entire work as a PDF file by clicking the Print tool Print from the Page View screen. Alternatively, you can print citation information for multiple works at once from your Marked Items List.

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

You can print a Portable Document Format (PDF) file of a document using AcrobatTM Reader, a free application available from Adobe Systems.

You may print 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 Print Print tool on the page toolbar
  2. The Print options page will be displayed in a separate pop-up window
  3. Select if you want to print as a PDF the current page, multiple pages, or when available, the entire work (details explained below)
  4. Click Print
  5. Your browser will display options for printing the file

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

Printing Citation Information for Your Marked Items

You may print your list of Marked Items as a list of citations (includes brief publication information only) or as Full Citations. Simply click the Print Print tool to display the Print Marked Items page.

Use the Print Marked Items page to select the Marked Items to be printed by checking individual items or to choose all, click the Print All box. Items are grouped into "Pages" and "Works" and there is a Print All box available for each group. By default, all items will be selected.

In the Print Options box, select Citation to print only the citation information for each marked item. Or select Full Citation to print the complete citation, which may include imprint, language, source library, subject area, and so forth. Both options show you the estimated number of printed pages.

When you have finished entering print information, click Print. Or click Cancel to close the window without making any changes and return to the last page viewed.
