To get free downloads of Nature.com articles, first make sure you're going to the website through the Library's online gateway (a.k.a. homepage). You can find the link to Nature.com on our Databases page

Once you've found the article you want on the Nature.com website, scroll down the page until you see a box that looks like this:

Click on the "Enhanced PDF" link and you'll see a new viewer open with the article. But you're not quite done yet! Wait a moment or scroll to page 2 of the article and you'll see more options:

Choose the rental option if you're happy just reading the article and having it disappear again, or if you want to save, print, and keep it choose "PDF." Then hit the "Checkout" link.

Next you'll be asked to register, so create your free account, checkout, and you'll be all set.
