Viewing pdfs from Ebsco & JSTOR

The following issues have been noticed, please be advised:

-If students use IE (Internet Explorer) when they are searching EBSCO at our computers, the pdf will not open in the EBSCO frame.  IE blocks the file as a security risk. You have to click on the bar that appears at the top of the screen and ask to specifically download the file.

-JSTOR pdfs won’t open in Firefox on library computers.

Please try using an alternative browser if you are having difficulty viewing a pdf from one of our databases.  If you are still having issues, please ask for assistance at the Information Desk.  Thank you.
