Viewing the Page Image - using Screen View

The Page Image screen enables you to view the scanned image of your article. From the Page Image screen, you can use the Toolbar to return to the Search screen, open a context-sensitive Help page and consult general information about Harper's Magazine Online.

There are three ways in which you can view the scanned images. You can:

Screen View

The scanned image, which you see in the bottom frame, has been converted into Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) that makes it smaller and therefore easier to download.

In Screen View, you can use the horizontal row of page numbers to see any page in the article.

Use the Back to Full Citation button to return to the Full Citation page.

Use the Print View button to look at the current scanned page of the article in more detail. If you do wish to see the page at a higher resolution and therefore a better quality image more suitable for printing, you will need to have a copy of Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer. Clicking on the Print View icon will launch whatever version of Adobe Acrobat you are running. Ideally, this application should function as a 'plugin'. This means that instead of launching a separate application, Adobe Acrobat will effectively 'take over' the bottom frame of your web browser window. It should display its own toolbar allowing you more functionality such as printing, saving, zooming in and out, as well as moving around the document by the use of the 'hand' tool. You also have the option of rotating the document. Use Download Whole Article to look at the article's multiple pages using Print View. In Print View you are be able to print or save all of the pages with one command.

Print View

If you wish to see the scanned article at a higher resolution, you will need to have Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer. If you are working from a Windows 95/98 or Windows NT platform click here if you wish to go to Adobe's web site to download this application now. If you are working from a Macintosh, Unix, or Windows 3.1 platform click here. It is a straightforward download process, but the time it takes to download will depend on what sort of Internet connection you have (i.e. land-line or modem and your bandwidth). Once you have clicked the download button, you will see a dialogue box containing two radio button options asking if you wish to run the application from its current location or save it to disk. You should select the latter option to save the application onto your hard disk. Once the download is complete you will then need to run the set-up executable file to 'unpack' the application.

Some of the functions of Adobe Acrobat such as text selection, and finding occurrences of phrases and keywords will not work, as the application is unable to read the textual content of the scanned images.


If you experience any problems either with the download or functionality of Adobe Acrobat, you can visit the customer support section of their site for advice in troubleshooting and answers to any queries you may have.

To discover the functionality that each icon performs, hold your mouse over it and an explanatory tool-tip will appear.
