Many of our database vendors offer you the opportunity to register and create a research account where you can save citations, search strategies, make notes, etc. Creating such an account allows you to keep track of your work, return to search results, maintain links to full text and utilize their citation generators when you are creating a bibliography.
Ebscohost – one of our biggest vendors providing over 60 of our databases including our Quick Search – has a “sign in” link at the top of their searching template. Click there to create an account; when you have one, sign in there to see your saved work. Other vendors offer similar research accounts for saving work.
As these accounts are specific to vendors, you will need to have separate accounts to save work in other vendor databases such as JSTOR or ProQuest databases.
If you would like help in setting up and using an account, check with the librarians at the Research Help Desk. They are happy to get your started on these accounts that can save you time, frustration and printing costs.
