It appears that there are difficulties in displaying the PDF version of search results within both the Scribner Writer Series database and the Twayne's Author Series database.
When a user conducts a search on a topic and the search results are displayed; each search result as links to view it in "Text" format or "PDF" format. If the user clicks on "Text" format the results are displayed correctly. However if the user clicks on "PDF" format. It tries to load but continually fails.
Gale has been informed of the problem and they are working on it (no expected time of resolution at this time). A note has been added to the A-Z and subject guides entries to the effect that there are temporary problems with the PDF display of search results and to select the Text alternative. Users should select the TEXT alternative until the problems are resolved.
