When using most of the article and book databases in the Library, you usually have the option of downloading articles to your computer, printing them out, or e-mailing them.  Generally if you're trying to download an article, look for a button or icon that looks like an old computer floppy disk (or one that says Save or Download), if you're trying to print something see if there is a button or icon that looks like a printer (or one that says Print), and if you're trying to e-mail the full text, look for an icon or button that looks like an envelope (or one that says E-mail). 


The following is a picture of these icons from an article display page in the Academic Search Premier database:


If you're looking at the PDF version of an article, look for similar icons, usually located toward the top of the document.
