Problems Saving ScienceDirect (Elsevier) PDFs
There is a known compatibility issue with Elsevier’s ScienceDirect and Adobe Reader X that prohibits easily saving PDF files. The workaround is to right-click on the PDF link and select the Save As option:
Internet Explorer – Save Target As
Firefox – Save Link As
If you use Chrome as your browser, this problem does not occur. That's because Chrome (Google) has a built-in PDF viewer enabled by default (http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1060734). It does not use the Adobe reader unless you tell it to when the PDF is opening. Once the PDF is opened in Chrome's PDF viewer, you can click on the Save icon and everything works properly
More information can be found on Elsevier's website.
Library Services for Chemical and Biomolecular Engineers
What Can the UD Library do for you?
The UD Library offers a number of services to our faculty and students. These include library instruction for classes; placing materials on reserve; selecting books, databases, and journals; interlibrary loan and more. Faculty members are encouraged to develop an active partnership with Cathy Wojewodzki, the librarian supporting the research needs of faculty and students.
Have you discovered the Student Multimedia Design Center?
The Student Multimedia Design Center is designed to meet the needs of the increasing number of classes which involve creation of multimedia projects and presentations as a course requirement. The Center offers space for practicing presentations and video multimedia equipment to use individually or in collaborative groups.
Offering over 80 workstations, the Center includes studios, classrooms, and clusters of computers. Faculty and students can create web sites with multimedia elements or use video, graphics, and narration to make a PowerPoint presentation come alive. The Center is also a good place to work on group projects with other students, practice a presentation in a studio, or borrow multimedia equipment.
