Using the Folder

To save citations to a temporary folder, click on the folder icon

Once the folder contains one or more citations, the icon will change to let you know how many items the folder contains.

No more than 50 citations can be saved to or emailed/exported from the save folder at a time.

Your saved items will be cleared when you leave or after an extended period of inactivity (4 hours).

If you would like to save your citations beyond the session, you can copy/paste, email, print or export your list to bibliographic management software.
