Saving

So you’ve found sources, and you want to save them. Discover expert strategies below.

Tools

Save PDF to Cloud

SuperSearch has a new feature called Save PDF to Cloud, which enables you to save files to Google Drive, Dropbox, or OneDrive.

  1. Enter a search into SuperSearch.
  2. Select the Save PDF to Cloud link below the title of your desired item in the results list.
  3. Select your preferred cloud service in the pop-up window.
  4. Select Save.

Zotero

We also recommend using Zotero, a citation management tool, which enables you to both save documents as well as create reference lists and in-text citations. Zotero is an extremely effective tool for large scale research projects where you need to save more than 15 sources.

SuperSearch Folders

Store, organize, access, share, and take notes on SuperSearch resources with an EBSCO account, which will enable you to access your research from any device. Learn how to create an EBSCO account and save articles in SuperSearch. Note: Once you graduate, you will no longer have access to EBSCO folders, so be sure to download your articles as PDFs prior to graduation.

Organizing Your Files

  1. Create a folder for your articles in a cloud drive such as Google Drive or Dropbox.
  2. Download and save articles to your folder.
  3. Rename the files using the author’s last name followed by the article title (e.g., Johnson – Paw preference as a tool for assessing emotional functioning and welfare in dogs and cats).
  4. Back up your files. Try Google Backup and Sync.
  5. Print articles and organize them according to topic. Printed articles are easier to read which will reduce fatigue.
