Chapter Download

Chapter downloads are clearly identified in the new Reader from the navigation tool bar and also on the new Reader Detail Page. You may download a chapter, a page range as well as an individual page in image pdf format.


There are two options to copy. To copy a page, select the copy icon in the navigation toolbar. To copy text within a page, select your text. A pop-up menu appears and you select the copy icon on the far left.

Search Within Book

In the search within book box, type your search term, making sure to put phrases in quotes. Search results are displayed showing frequency bars next to each chapter. Click on the triangle to the left of the chapter for counts of results per page and contextual snippets of text. Click on the snippet to display the page in the book with the highlighted search terms.


In the new online Reader use Print to PDF to create a PDF that can be printed (or saved). You may choose Current Page, Page Range, or Current Chapter. You choose which of the five citation styles will be appended to the PDF: APA, Chicago/Turabian - Notes - Bibliography, Chicago/Turabian - Author - Date, Harvard, or MLA.
