You can save articles directly from your search results, by selecting the box on the left of the article title. You can select more than one at a time. Once an article is selected you will see a number of icons become visible at the top of the list. Select the “Bookmark” icon to save your selected articles.

Add tags
You will be prompted to add a tag – this is a descriptor that will be added to each article you have selected. I would recommend that you add a meaningful tag.

Here I have added a new tag “nut allergy”. You can add more than one tag.

You can add some short notes to your tag – this should be helpful information to remind yourself of the purpose of the content. Select the “Notes for…” link, enter your comments and click “Save changes”.

Try It

Keeping a list of saved content is a good habit. You will be able to refer back to the original content that you have found and used. Use tags and tag-notes to keep of track of related content and why you are saving it.
