Each publisher has different options for downloading content. Some information providers allow pdf download, and otherrs do not.
Some publishers, like Elsevier (ClinicalKey) require you create a personal account in their system in order to access certain features, like PDF downloads.
We recognize that being presented with some kind of log in screen can make things confusing for students. Most of the time, you do not need to create a personal account to access library resources.
We have asked our information providers repeatedly to remove the barrier of a login in order to download pdf content, but have not been able to get publishers to change this requirement.
If you have any questions about access to digital information resources at DMU, please contact the library.
