Options for Printing NCI Materials

You have several options for printing National Cancer Institute (NCI) materials.

Print single copies from your printer

  • You can view many NCI materials online and print them using your own printer.
  • When you look for materials using the National Cancer Institute’s Publications Locator (NCIPL), a VIEW button next to the title of the item means that it is available online.
  • Click the VIEW button to read the material from your computer.
  • Many publications also provide a printer-friendly display. After you click the VIEW button, look on the left-hand side for the Page Options box, and click the “View/Print PDF” link. If the PDF option is unavailable, you can still print the material using the “Print This Page” or “Print This Document” links.

Ride-On a Government print order

  • Adding on to a Government print order is called a Ride-On. With NCI’s approval, you can purchase extra copies when the NCI prints publications.
  • Ride-On helps your organization save money because of lower Government printing costs.
  • Ride-On opportunities are available only when the Government is printing a particular publication.
  • The Ride-On Printing fact sheet contains more information about this program and how to sign up for e-mail alerts about Ride-On opportunities. You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer to view and print PDF files. To install Adobe Acrobat Reader, click here for a free download.
