ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Full Article: Full Text - PDF

A guide to all aspects of ProQuest Historical Newspapers including content, searching, and viewing results on the new ProQuest platform.

Full Text - PDF Tips

1. PDF options in the ProQuest Platform

The default view for Full Text - PDF displays the PDF document within the ProQuest platform (notice the ProQuest platform menus and record tool bar at the top of the document).

For a reminder of how to use the options in the record tool bar, please see Full Record: Citation or Citation/Abstract in the Results section of this guide.

2. Open in PDF Reader

The Open in PDF Reader option opens the PDF in a new window and it is no longer resting within the ProQuest platform, but on its own within the traditional Adobe Reader format. Please see the second screenshot for an example of the document opened in the Adobe Reader format.

3. Other Formats

When you select to view the Full text - PDF format of the full record, you will see links to Citation or Citation/Abstract, Page view - PDF and Page view (clickable). Each record will contain links to the available document formats and any linking tools that the library administrator has enabled to help locate the full text.

4. Adobe Reader Tools

Viewing a document in Adobe Reader brings up the full Adobe Reader tool bar. Some of the features available to you through Adobe Reader include zooming in/out, cropping, searching for keywords, saving, printing, emailing, the snapshot tool, and highlighting. Please use the help menu available through the Adobe Reader for assistance in using Adobe Reader to work with PDF documents.
