Hello! Glad you asked!

There are several ways to save research articles you need for your papers. One way to save papers is to open the full text and save the PDF file to your computer. This example is from an EBSCO database, but it will work on any PDF file.

Another way is to email the PDF of the article to yourself and work from the emailed copy. Again, this will work from just about any database. Click on the title of the article and locate the email tool. Send yourself an email with the PDF attached.

Yet another way to save articles is to create your own personal account on the database, save the article to the folder, and log into your account whenever you need to see the articles in your folder. Note that if you save articles to the folder without logging in to your personal account, the articles will disappear when you leave the database!

If you have any questions, let us know and we'll be glad to walk you through the process.
