Saving Items to your Lists

Save items to lists in your account by clicking the Save to Account link in an item record. You will be prompted to create a list name the first time you do this, if you've not already created a list.

Editing Lists

Click on a List name to edit the details. You can add notes to individual items or remove them from a list. You can delete an entire list as well. Deleting a list will also delete the items from your account, unless they are on multiple lists.

Sharing Lists

You have the option to make a list public. Do this by clicking Edit List and then changing the option to public. Your list is accessible to anyone who has the web address. Copy that from your browser and paste it into an email or document to share it.

Your Saved Searches

This option allows you to save searches that you want to repeat at a later date. It saves your search terms and limits, not the search results, so it can be a way to locate new materials of interest. The saved searches page displays a list of your recent searches. Click on the save link to save for later use.

You can also save searches from any results page. There is a link at the bottom of each results page to Save Search. You will prompted to log in to My Account, if you haven't already done so.
