Print to PDF Instructions

With a personal account, you can save LWW Health Library content as PDF documents if you’d like to reference materials off-line and do not wish to print.

First, go to the chapter of a specific text you’d like to save to PDF. Under the chapter heading you’ll see the following options; select PRINT:


A window will automatically pop up displaying options for which printer you'd like to send the document to. Select the drop down menu and chose ADOBE PDF.


A window will pop up prompting you to select where you'd like to save the document; select the location of your preference


The PDF document will almost always automatically pop up once a version is saved to your computer. If not, locate the document where you saved it and enjoy access to the chapter offline

Please note! A personalized watermark-the name you used when registering your personal account-will appear at the bottom of each page:


The LWW Health Library

is your portal to trusted Lippincott content—including our most commonly required textbooks and multimedia assets—for use in medical, pharmacy, and other health sciences programs. Collections within the LWW Health Library can be purchased wholly or in smaller segments such as Anatomical Sciences, Osteopathic Medicine, or Cornerstone Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Now available on Silverchair’s 6.0 platform, the site provides faculty and student users with:

  • Intuitive user interface, with texts and multimedia easily accessible or searchable by asset type
  • Improved title/reading view with image “download to PowerPoint” feature
  • Enhanced search functionality, including semantic tagging and filtering by subject—a critical component of learning in integrated curricula
  • Hundreds of cases, each with a brief description for use in case or problem-based learning
  • “Web-responsive design” that recognizes the device in use and adjusts the view accordingly
  • Multimedia such as videos, animations, and quiz banks compatible with iOS devices for uninterrupted viewing

Institutional administrators will appreciate the COUNTER-compliant usage data, which can be accessed via administrator log-in, as well as the User Central portion of the site with MARC Records, user engagement tools, and more. Please contact your Lippincott or Ovid representative for collection information and pricing.
