Saving HTML articles varies by database. Not all articles will have HTML full text as an option.


Note: Instructions for saving the full text of articles depend on the article format: PDF or HTML. Articles found in databases may be available in both formats or only one or the other. Learn how to save an article as a PDF.



Here are the steps to save an HTML full text article in some common Library databases:

1. When you see an article in your results with HTML Full Text as the only option, click on the article title. Scroll down on the page that opens to see the full text.

3. Follow the prompts to save the document in HTML format.


Be sure the save prompt clearly indicates that you are saving the HTML full text. Otherwise you may only be saving the article citation and abstract.
