EBSCO Discovery Service LibGuide: Using Search Results

How to Use Your Search Results

Using Search Results Guide

Here is a step-by-step guide for Using Search Results on Discovery:

Using Your Search Results

After completing your search, you then have to choose your results. There are many features on the results screen that you can familiarise yourself with in order to get the most out of Discovery. Check out the Using Results video and pdf to begin using your search results! 

Using Search Results Quick Tip - Referencing

Discovery provides a tool to easily create and save references/citations. This is a great tool if you are new to referencing and are unsure of how to format.

The Cite Tool appears to the right of the PDF document in the PDF Full Text Viewer. Remember to always check the format of a reference generated from Discovery or one of the databases to the NCI Library Referencing Guide. If you need help with the referencing, take a look at the library's Referencing and Avoiding Plagiarism guide. For more detailed guidance on using a reference manager, check out the Library's Mendeley LibGuide
