Viewing Items

To view an item page from the search results page, click the title, which should be a blue hyperlink text.
A new page will display, providing a detailed record for the chosen item. The title will display first, and if available, the first page of the document. Underneath the picture, in a gray box are an icon and the text “Download Resource.” Clicking on the text will download the item.

Your browser might open the document (especially if it is a PDF) in another tab or window. You may download it from the in-browser viewer by clicking the “save” icon, which is a small floppy disc in the upper left-hand corner. By saving it, the resource will be stored on your computer’s hard drive, so that you may access it at your leisure without searching or browsing through KCResearch again.

If your browser does not do this, a window asking you to download (either open the file or save the file) should pop-up, and your computer will download the file to your computer either way.

Due to copyright restrictions and permissions, not all resources on KCResearch may be downloaded. However, for these resources KCResearch provides a link to the resource or to the website of the organization or person that authored the resource. The link to view sources that appear on websites may be accessed by clicking once on the blue link text that says “Click here to view document.”
