In EBSCOhost and other library databases, you can save documents and searches to a folder. By saving the documents in a folder, you are able to: quickly access the document for later use; e-mail the documents; save the documents as a file; export documents.

Here is how you can add a document to a folder in EBSCOhost:

  • Select the yellow folder Icon located right to the title of the article on your search page


  • If you have selected an article and are reviewing its abstract and citation information, there is a list of tools on the right of the screen. Select: Add to folder
