Bookmarking articles and searches

You may wish to bookmark an article in order to be able to return to it quickly, or a useful search to run it again at a later date.

Bookmark an article

On each article page, above the "about this resource" panel, you will find a "star" bookmark icon. Simply click on this, and a "bookmark" or "favourite" box will appear, depending on which browser you are using. The "name" field will automatically be populated with the title of the article, but this can be amended to a name of your choice.

You can save the article in an existing bookmarks/favourites folder, or create a new folder to house it.

You will then be able to access the article at a later date from your browser bookmarks/favourites.

Bookmark a search

You may wish to re-run a particularly useful search at a later date. In the top right of each search results page, you will find a "bookmark" option. Simply click on this, give your search an appropriate name and save it in your chosen bookmark/favourites folder, or create a new folder to house it.

You will then be able to re-run the search at a later point from your browser bookmarks/favourites without having to remember and reinsert the search parameters. The search results will include any content that matches your search parameters that has been added to the site since you initially created and ran the search.
