1. Print, Email, Download

From your Marked List, you can select to print, email, or download any or all of the records included in your list.

On the print, email, or download records page you will find the following options:

Enter Comment - If you wish, you can attach relevant comments or notes to your selections by entering them in this field.

Select Citation Format - Choose the citation format to print, email, or download. Format options are: Text (short record), Text (full record), EndNote, ProCite, Reference Manager, and RefWorks.

Select Email Format - this option will appear on the Email Records page only, and will allow you to choose whether to receive your emails in HTML format or Plain Text format by clicking the relevant radio button. Note that you should choose the HTML format option if you want durable URLs to be included in your emails.

Sort Records by - Choose an order in which to sort your records. Sort options are:

Click the Author page in Literature Online link on the Marked List page and then the Literature Online Author page for that author will open in a new window, with EEBO remaining open in the original window.

4. Download Document Images

This allows you to download the entire document in PDF format. Please be aware that this can take a long time if you are on a slow internet connection.

You have two options on the Download Images page:

  • You can select the 'Download range of document images' radio button and enter any page number or range of pages.

5. Save Notes
