Q

What happens to documents I save in a database folder?

I am researching in an EBSCOHost database and saving article records to the Folder. What happens to those saved articles if I close my browser session?

Answer

Clicking "Add to Folder" while searching EBSCOHost databases is an efficient way of marking out articles whose citation information and full text you wish to save.

However, note that the folder in EBSCOHost databases is a temporary storage space that disappears when your browsing session is closed. To save these records, go to the folder link on the top of the screen. Then, email the records and full text to yourself using the tool on the right side of the screen (you can have this email send you formatted citations as well). Alternatively, you can save the pdfs of article records to your computer, then "Export" the article information to RefWorks.

For more information on RefWorks, see our RefWorks Guide.

Yet another option is to create a free EBSCOHost account. Then, items saved in folders when you are signed in will be retained. You can access them by signing in again.

This instruction also applies to "Marked Records" and most other methods of saving records while browsing used by our various databases.
