Help: Saved Items

What is the Saved Items page?

The Saved Items page lists all the items you have saved to My Archive. It allows you to store items beyond a single session. From the Saved Items page you can view any of the items listed again, email, print, download, or remove items from your list.


Your saved items are organised into folders so that you can make lists on different topics related to your research. The Saved Items page opens the Default folder the first time you use it. Click the Create new folder link to make other folders to organize your items into, this will take you to the Manage folders page.

If you have more than one folder, the Saved Items page displays the Manage folders link and the Change folder dropdown menu listing all your folders. To open a different folder choose the relevant folder name in the dropdown list and click the Change button.

Note: once multiple folders have been created, items will be saved to the last folder you created by default. If you leave My Archive or end your session, the Saved Items page will open the last folder you created the next time you visit My Archive.

These are shown in shelfmark order with a copy-specific note to summarise the variations between copies.
