Issues with downloading PDFs in ProQuest

October 13, 2015

It never rains… It seems that we are having a few issues with downloading PDFs from ProQuest at the moment. When you try to access the full-text PDF, you may find that there is a blank space where you would expect the PDF to display. However, if you look for the large, green download PDF button on the right-hand side, click on that instead and you should be able to open the PDF. We’re not sure at the moment if this affects all browsers/operating systems, and are working with the providers to resolve the issue. Apologies for any inconvenience.
