Downloading Volumes of the Transactions of the Northeast Section of the Wildlife Society

Articles from the Transactions cannot yet be downloaded individually. However, downloads of whole volumes are possible. The link for downloading a volume is found in the document description. Instructions follow below on how to get to this link and download the PDF of a Transactions volume.

  • First, click on the link that reads, in red font, "Instructions for downloading TNSWS volumes."
  • Recommended: Keep a window or tab open for these instructions and one open for the TNSWS collection.
  • If you know the volume in which the article appears, then select the range of years during which the volume was published. (If you don't know the volume year, you may opt to input a keyword to search for the article - and, by extension, the volume.)

  • Next, you'll get to a screen showing a list of volumes as your results. The screen shot at right shows a cluster of these, including the volume for 1968 (outlined in blue).

  • Click on the image for the 1968 volume.
