Printing Instructions & Alternatives


Printing from the Internet (This can work with Word documents, too.)

(Note: Many web pages have links that say "Printable Version" or "Printer-friendly Version." Choosing this link may get rid of sidebars and other non-text features.)

The location of printing options will vary depending upon your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) and how you have configured it. Look for a Printer icon or a menu option that says Print (or Print Preview).

Use "Print Preview"

  • Click on Print Preview.
    • Check which pages actually have the information you need. (Remember: Printing is limited to 15 sheets per day.)
    • If you want to print all the pages, click the Print button or option.

Use "Page Range"

  • If you want to specify which pages to print, in the pop-up window, select either
    • Current Page (if you want only the page your cursor is on), or
    • click on Pages choice and enter the range of pages to print. (Example: Pages from : 3 to: 5)

Print Only "Selected Text"

  • If you want to print a specific part of the web page,
    • highlight a selection with the mouse before starting the printing process,
  • choose Print;
  • choose Selection;
  • Click Print or OK.

Saving Information to portable storage (e.g.,USB drive)

  • Insert a portable storage device (USB/Thumb drive).
  • Go to page you wish to save.
    • Click Save As.
    • In the pop-up window, click on the down arrow in the Save in window at the top or Browse to the appropriate drive.
    • Choose the drive where your portable storage is.
  • In the File name window, type a name.
    • If you will want to use the information later for word processing, make sure the file name ends in .txt.
    • If you will want to look at the information later as a web page, make sure the file name ends in .htm or .html.
  • Click Save.
  • Remove USB drive safely.

Note: Saving web pages in HTML format (.htm or .html) will automatically create a folder for any graphics associated with the web page.
This can take up a lot of space on your USB drive.

Saving Information to Google Documents

Did you know that ACC provides a place on line where you can store and even edit your documents from anywhere you have access to the internet?

If you have activated your ACCmail account (emailname@g.austincc.edu), you have access to many online Google applications like Google Documents. [See more information about this.]
Instruction on how to save to Google Documents can be found at Google Docs Basics.

Note: Unless you want to edit the document online in Google Docs, you do not have to convert it to Google docs format.

Emailing Articles from e-Resources

  • Most of the e-resources to which ACC subscribes allow emailing articles to the searcher.
    • Examples: Academic Search Complete, Opposing Viewpoints, Masterfile Premier
  • Although the individual resources handle this is different ways, the methods are somewhat similar:
    • After searching, a results list is displayed.
    • You may take a look at the results one at at time or you may mark particular results for later viewing.
  • Once all the desired results are marked, you can either:
  • view them on screen
  • print them to a local printer
  • download to a portable storage device
  • email them to yourself

Note: Instructions on how to do all of these things are usually at the end of the results list or in the Help file.
