How to Use the Digital Archives

For optimum performance use the latest version of Internet Explorer and Adobe Reader.

  • SEARCH: Basic Keyword Searching, Phrase Searching with quotation marks, Boolean Search under “any search words” vs “all search words,” and Truncation searching.
  • PRINT: Use the Camera tool to select what you want to email or print.  When viewing your document, right click on the top menu bar; go to “Edit,” then down to “Take Snapshot.” This adds the camera tool to the menu bar.  Click on it and drag a blue box around any item you want, select “Actual Fit” under size options, then choose PRINT.
  • EMAIL: Copy selected image to the clipboard or a Word document to paste the article, then send as an attachment from the EMAIL.
