EBSCO improves ability to browse a journal issue

Have you ever wanted to peruse an entire issue of an electronic journal in a way similar to how you can a physical copy? It can be clunky. Now, when journals are in PDF format in one of our many EBSCO databases, the issue’s full contents will list on the left side of the screen with one open article displaying on the right. Hover the cursor over one of the article titles to see the full title, and simply click to move to another place in the issue. Don’t understand? Check out this demo.
A key technical point to make this work: your browser must have the most recent version of the Acrobat Reader plugin installed. You should be prompted to download it when necessary, and make sure that your browser allows the download–the notice that it has blocked it can be very subtle in the browser bar.
