In some of our EBSCO databases you may see either/both HTML or/and PDF full text options.

PDF and HTML full text buttons

If you selct PDF full text, the full article will open and will look like a scan of the original article. It will have the same formatting and all the pictures, charts and graphs that were in the original article. If you select HTML full text, the text of the article will open within the database. It will not have the formatting of the original article. Many times pictures, charts and graphs that appeared in the original will appear in the HTML full text but not always.

One nice feature of the HTML is that the article can be read aloud to you:

audio tools

If you click 'Listen' you can listen to it within the database. You can choose the reading speed and accent that the article gets read to you in. Clicking the button with the downward pointing arrow lets you download the audio to your computer/device.
