Using Folders in Discover

May 1, 2012

From discussions with students over the past couple of weeks, it appears there’s confusion about how the folder in Discover is supposed to work. Students add items to a folder, but are finding the folder empty when they next go in to Discover.
To keep items in your folder between searching sessions, you need to sign up with Discover as an individual using the Sign In link in the blue tool bar top right.

Signing up with Discover is free and easy, but if you don’t want to do it, you just need to remember to deal with the items in your folder before you leave Discover. If you don’t have time in one session to chase articles down, you can e-mail the records to yourself. This will include a link to take you back to the record in Discover so you can finish checking the article.
