Question

Is there a way to access my recent searches over the last week? I am looking for a work that I read several days ago.

Details

I used some material from a work for a paper and forgot to cite the article.

There is no way to retrieve old searches and results if you are not using an account to save your work as you go, but it is easy to set up! If you are using an EBSCO or ProQuest database, you can create a free account to save your searches and articles for easy reference. Please see below:

EBSCOhost Databases:

1) When you enter the database's main search screen, click the "Sign In" button at the top of the page. 

2) Then click "Create New Account" and follow instructions for your personal profile.

3) When you are logged in, you'll see the EBSCO logo change and it will look like this:

4) When you search or find an article, you can use the "Alert/Save/Share" or "Save Article" buttons to place those items in your folder for later reference.

ProQuest Databases:

1) When you enter the database's main search screen, click the "My Research” button at the top of the page.

2) Then click “Create a MyResearch Account” and follow instructions for your personal profile.

3) When you are logged in, you can use the "Save Search" or "Save to My Research" buttons to place those items in your folder for later reference.

Alternatively, you could use a program like Zotero to manage your research. Find out more about Zotero on our LibGuide here: http://libguides.brenau.edu/Zotero
