Discovery Saving Features

     Discovery provides many features to help                      you organise and conduct your research as simply          and efficiently as possible. These features include creating and sharing folders, saving searches, and setting alerts.

Using Folders

  With Discovery you can create custom folders to       collect and store resources and to share with other     users. These items will remain in your folder until       you remove them, so you can easily access them                          each time you use Discovery.

Check out this guide on Saving & Sharing Folders on Discovery:

Saving Searches & Setting Alerts

Discovery provides a saving feature where you can save your searches, retrieve and reuse them so you can begin where you last left off. 

   You can also set up alerts to receive notifications          when new resources regarding your search or a              particular journal are available on Discovery.
