Sometimes, the New York Times databases will shrink long articles onto one piece of paper, making it hard to read.

To format the article so it prints in readable-sized type on several pages, do this:

- when you've found a PDF article you'd like to print, see if there's a "Print to Fit" option on the database's blue command bar. (It's right next to the "Cite" and download choices.

If the article is shorter and will fit on one page, you can just click the Print icon.

The New York Times databases come in two parts: Current (recent years only) or Historical (1851-2006). Both are under General Databases on the library's main page. 

The databases will write a citation for you too: click the Cite button. (It's usally not totally correct, so check with the Center for Reading and Writing!) You can also e-mail the article to yourself.
