How do I link to or save search results?
Most databases have a way to save searches, but some require creating an account (Free!) with the database company. For assistance contact a librarian.
SuperSearch and EBSCO Databases:
1. After entering a search there is an option above the results that says "Share."
2. Click on that option and a small window will open. A persistent link to the search is available for you to cut and paste or share in a variety of ways.
3. You can also make a personal account with EBSCO so you can save articles to a personal folder. Look for the Sign In button at the top of any EBSCO database such as the library SuperSearch. Create a new account to be able to save your search history.
In a Proquest database (ex: Research Library) you must create a Proquest Research account to save your searches.
1. After entering a search there is an option below the search box and to the far right called "Save search/alert." Click on it and select "Save Search".
2. You will be prompted to sign in or create a Proquest Research account if you do not have one.
3. After creating your account you will then name your search.
SAGE requires a SAGE journals account to save searches.
1. Click on "Sign in" at the top and then complete the registration process under the "Register for a New Account" area.
2. After entering a search, click on the Search Tab at the top and then Search History. Find the search you want to save and click on "Add to Saved Searches."
