Managing Citations in Databases
Most databases allow you to store items for later reference.
Store items temporarily
As you scan search results for interesting citations, you may wish to put them in a temporary 'parking lot' that you can go back to when you are done searching the database. These 'parking lots' eventually disappear after you have stopped using the database.
Click the Add to Folder link below each item to move individual citations to the temporary folder. Click the Folder icon at the top of the page to view all items added. From the folder you can print, email, or save records.To use a specific citation style, select the style under Citation Format.
Click the checkbox next to an item to select it. In the menu above the result list, click on View Selected Items. From the next page you can Email, Print, Cite, or Save.
Click on the title of the item to view the record. Click on Cite/Export in list of options above the title. Click the plus sign next to the desired citation format, then copy the citation and paste into a word processing or email document.
Store items permanently
EBSCO databases allow you to create an account to save items in your folder permanently. To retrieve items, click on Sign in in the upper right menu.
In UW Worldcat, you can create an account to save items to a list permanently. Select multiple items at once by clicking on the checkbox. At the top of the list, next to Save to, click on Save. To retrieve citations, go to the list and click on the Citation View tab above the first record. Select your citation style and change the Sort by order as needed. In the drop down menu next to Export Selected References, choose Rich Text to save as a Word document.
