How can I view PDFs in EBSCOhost using Google Chrome?

The Google Chrome browser has a built-in PDF viewer that you will need to disable in order to view content within the EBSCOhost PDF viewer.

To disable the Google Chrome PDF Viewer:

  1. Type about:plugins (or chrome://plugins/ ) into the Google Chrome address bar. 

    A list of Chrome Plug-ins is displayed in the browser.

  2. Scroll down to Chrome PDF Viewer.

  3. Select Disable.

The Adobe Reader plug-in may automatically be enabled if you have it installed.

To Enable the Adobe Reader Plugin:

  1. From the about:plugins page, scroll down to Adobe Reader.

  2. Select Enable.

Note: While many features may work using Google Chrome, EBSCOhost does not officially support the browser at this time. Full support for the Google Chrome browser is planned for Fall 2011.
