Saving Your Work

There are several ways you can save your research work as you move through your project:

  • Create an account within a database (JSTOR, Academic Search Complete, Credo, etc.) and save articles to folders.
  • Send individual articles to yourself, print them, save to a thumb drive or upload to Google Drive using the database widgets provided. These will look slightly different depending on the database, and are typically found when you open up individual articles. You can also download a PDF if it's available. Here's what the widgets look like in the Ebsco databases:

    • save articles
