View Full Page
To view the full page on which any article in your results list was published, first click on the article snippet to call up the article in the Image Viewer. At this point you have two ways to view the full page.
Above the light gray image view pane that contains the actual image of the article, there is a page view tool that allows you to view the full page.
The other way is using the Table of Contents.
Table of Contents (TOC)
On the left side of your display window, you will see a Table of Contents for the issue of the newspaper from which this article comes. The article you are currently viewing will be indicated in the list of articles and pages by the use of bold type. To view the full page containing that article, or any other full page in that issue, select the page in the TOC. Note that when you move your cursor over the individual articles listed in the TOC, they are highlighted in yellow on the full page image in the image view pane.
Header information above page image
Above the image, you will find the page number; date of the issue; title of the newspaper in which this page appears; and the location where the newspaper was published.
Image Viewer tools
In the light gray image view pane, you will see the image of the page. Above the actual image, there are several tools that allow you to perform a variety of tasks related to the displaying, downloading, and printing of the page you are currently viewing.
Open the page as a PDF
The PDF tool allows you to open the current page as a PDF. The PDF view of the page will open in a new window from which you can print or save the page.
Resize the page image (ZOOM tool)
The zoom controls allow you to resize the image within the image view pane. You can use either the plus or the minus button to move up or down one zoom level at a time, or you can use the buttons in between to jump directly to a particular zoom level.
Reposition the page image
The four-pointed arrow tool allows you to manually reposition the page within the image display pane. Just click on the four-pointed arrow button and position your cursor anywhere in the image pane, including directly over the image itself. Click and drag the image using the left button of your mouse.
Also, the edges and corners of the image view pane contain small arrows to move up, down, left, right, and diagonally. These arrows are active only if it is possible to move the image in a particular direction -- you cannot continue to arrow down once you have reached the bottom of the page, for example. They are particularly useful for large images that may not fit completely within the image view pane.

Choose an article from the page image
The “Select Articles” tool allows you to choose specific articles for viewing from within the page image itself. By default, this tool is active when you are viewing full pages. If, however, you have used the four-pointed arrow tool to reposition the image, you may need to click on the select articles button to activate this feature.
With the select articles tool active you can mouse over the page to highlight separate articles, which will appear in yellow. If you wish to view a particular article on this page, simply left-click with your mouse once you have highlighted the appropriate area within the image. Or, you can use the Table of Contents as mentioned above. For more information on viewing articles, see View article.
Reset the image to default size and position
The reset tool enables you to return to the default image display for the page if you have changed the zoom level or manually repositioned the page on your screen. Just clicking on this tool will return the image to its original display size and position on the screen.
Get a printer-friendly view of the page
The printer tool provides you with a printer-friendly view of the image. From the printer-friendly view, you can choose to print the image only, the citation only, or both. You can choose a page layout -- portrait or landscape -- and your paper size. There is also a checkbox to “Fit Image to Page” which will ensure that large images are resized to fit on the paper size that you chose. This is a particularly useful feature when printing full-page images, which are not likely to fit on standard 8" X 11" paper without resizing. Once you have made your choices, use your browser’s print function to print a copy of the page. To return to the regular page display, you can use your browser’s back button or the breadcrumb trail at the top of the display window.
Maximize (or minimize) the image view pane
The last of the button tools, the image view tool allows you to maximize the image view pane. When you maximize the Image Viewer, the header information at the top and the Table of Contents on the left will be removed from the display. This gives you the largest possible area in which to display the image of the page. This tool is particularly effective for large images. To return to the regular image display, simply click on the tool again. This will restore the header information that normally appears above the image, as well as the Table of Contents that appears on the left side of the display window, and return the image view pane to its default size. You will notice that the little arrow in the button icon points up and left to maximize the Image Viewer, and down and right to “minimize” the Image Viewer and reveal the document header and the issue TOC once again.
