About Saving, E-Mailing, & Printing Records

As you search the Library Catalog, you can save records during your session so you can print, e-mail, or export only the items you want. You can also save records to any list you create.

Saving multiple items using "Mark" checkboxes.

You can save items any time the Mark checkboxes are present:

  1. Check the "Mark" boxes of the items you want.
  2. Click the "Save Marked Records" button or the "Add To My Lists" button.

Saving individual items.

When you are displaying individual bibliographic records, click on the "Save Record" button to add it to your session or use "Add to My Lists" button to add it to a list.

How long are my records saved?

Your records are saved only as long as your search session lasts for the "Save" feature; records added to any list are stored until you remove them.

Your session will end automatically after 1 hour of inactivity. It will also end if you close your browser (or it crashes), or if you choose "End Session" from the Search History pop-up menu.
