Saving Results with Title Lists

Title lists gather and save information from your search results. You can create a working title list from your current search results, then print it, send it by e-mail, or save it to a disk. When you print, send, or save your working title list, you have the following format choices:

• Brief bibliographic display - Can include availability information

• Full bibliographic display - Can include availability information

Your working title list is available for your current session only. However, if you have a library account, you can create and save multiple title lists in association with your library account. Whenever you log in, you can see and work with your saved lists. You can move or copy titles among lists, and print, send, or save to disk any list you have saved in your library account.
