Answer

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.

 Proquest Databases:

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 Databases:

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."
