Community Faculty Resources: Saving Searches

Why save a search?

If you have a long-term project or interest, you might want to save a search and periodically re-run it to look for new material.

Saving a search can be a real time saver, especially if you struggled to craft just the right search strategy.  

At your instruction, many databases will even forward new results to you via email or RSS.  To the right are some examples of saving searches in some popular Campbell databases.  

The general steps to save a search will be very similar throughout most databases.
