EBSCO eBooks have a known printing issue within the Chrome browser. The vendor is aware of the issue and is working on a fix.

Access to the ERIC database is active through EBSCO, but full-text for some documents may not be available. “PDF Release Pending” means that the document cannot be released electronically at this time due to concerns about personally identifiable information in some older, non-peer reviewed documents. No other EBSCO databases are affected.
