Q. Why can't I print articles from the Harvard Business Review (HBR)?

I am trying to access an article from HBR through EBSCOhost. I can pull it up and even save the pdf but it will not let me print it. What am I doing wrong?

Printing is limited for the Harvard Business Review through EBSCOhost. PDFs download as secure files (which will not print). Clicking the EBSCO print icon retrieves a message indicating “The full text for selected articles from this publisher cannot be printed."  However, we have had some success with printing using the following steps.

1. Go into EBSCOhost, find the article, and click on the PDF Full Text link.

2. From the resulting screen, click on the Adobe print icon instead of the EBSCO print icon.

While electronic access to the HBR is limited to the EBSCOHost database, the title is also available in print within the Library collection. To obtain an article from the print copy, you can either place the volume on hold, pull the volume from the shelves yourself, or request document delivery service.
