**NOTE:  Before you print you must either:

 1) Highlight what you want on the webpage, go to “File” and “Print,” click the circle next to “Selection,” then “Print.”  OR

 2)  Copy and paste to a Word document (to find “Word,” go to “Start” and choose “Programs.”  “MS Office” is where “Word” can be found.)   Once you have the information copied and pasted to the Word Document, you can change the size of the font to a smaller size (On the Word Document go to "Edit" then "Select All."  Click the arrow next to the font size number at the top and change the number to 10 or 8 if you can read text that small.)  OR

 3) If you are in a database (Grolier, SIRS, Gale, EBSCO, ABC-CLIO etc.) use the “printer friendly” icon and you don’t have to copy and paste.
