How to Use My Favorites

Adding item records to 'My Favorites' is a great way to stay organized and develop a carefully selected group of records for future use, such as a course reading list. Within 'My Favorites,' you may create labels to organize your saved items, email saved items, print item records, push items to citation management systems (i.e. EndNote), and more. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have questions about using 'My Favorites.'
