How to highlight and create a note
1 - Log in
2 - Do a search and find a book you want to highlight something in.
3 - Place your cursor at the beginning of the place you want to highlight and hold the mouse while moving to the end of the area you want to quote.
4 - Click on the button NEXT to the yellow square (red arrow above is pointing to it)
5 - Choose the yellow (or pink or blue) where the green arrow is pointing above. The top three choices highlight only, the next three highlight and allow you to put a note (such as 'good for conclusion', 'good for xx argument', 'quote on the Gulf'). You can use these to help you organize your paper.
6 - Type message in the colored box and click ok.
7 - Next time you enter ebrary - log in - Go to your Bookshelf (tab at top) and you will see your book. You can click on the book, the quotation that you highlighted (to go directly to that page) or on your comment.
How to print in ebrary
1 - Find the pages you want to print (there are limits due to copyright laws).
2 - Click on INFOTOOLS (near the top left) and a dropdown menu appears. Go to print - and a box appears where you put in the page numbers you wish to print.
How to copy/paste and automatically get citation
1 - To make sure you have the citation TYPE that you want, you should first go to My Settings (near top right where your login is located) and choose (MLA format or APA, etc.) and then click SET PREFERENCES at the bottom. You need to check this each time you login to ebrary (it definitely changes when you change computers).
2 - Find the book and area you want to copy (due to copyright laws there are restrictions). Highlight the text you would like to copy.
3 - Go to INFOTOOLS near the top left (see box above for image) and go to copy instead of print. A small box appears with the text highlighted and it says to press CTRL + C (like Windows copying)
4 - Open a word processor (Word, Notepad, etc. or an email) and click CTRL + V to paste or right click the mouse and click paste. The text you highlighted is copied, as well as the CITATION. (Remember to put direct quotations in quotation marks)
"The purpose of this chapter is twofold: (a) to propose a methodology of how to construct hypotheses from anecdotes and how to put these hypotheses to the empirical test. First, a hypothesis is proposed as the best explanation for a given anecdote. Then this explanation, this specific hypothesis, is made a general hypothesis by its generalization across these variables: animals, similar situations, similar responses, and time."
