Save items to your collection

Every search result in Library Search will show a pin icon. Once you've logged in to Library Search, clicking the pin will save the result to your collection. After pinning items, you can click on the large pin icon in the top bar to view them, making this an efficient way to work through your search results.

From your saved collection, you can also tag each result, which allows you to group and filter the results to different topic areas, subjects or even specific assignments. It's totally up to you.

Find your forgotten searches in your search history

Forgot what those magic keywords were that you used in a previous search? Logging in to Library Search means all your diligently curated keyword searches are automatically saved. The filters or advanced search options are retained in the history too.
