Can I read documents online? Or do I have to download?

Can I read documents online? Or do I have to download?

You can do both from a computer (see note about mobile devices), whatever suits your needs.

If you would like to view the document online or onscreen click the READ ONLINE button. You can read or scan through it to determine if it is relevant to your research.

If you like the document you can then download it, or bookmark it so you can find it easily again.

Note, that if using GetLitt on a mobile device, the read online function is not available, the document can only be downloaded and bookmarked.
