My lists

The user has the ability to save the resources from both the search results page and from the record view page to their own customizable lists.

This helps to eliminate the need for desktop based citation management software that tends to be too difficult for basic users. This makes it simple for all users.

  1. Log in to your account.
  2. Perform a Search to find the resource you wish to add to the list.
  3. Click on this resource.
  4. After accessing the item detail page, click on Add to a list. This will show a pop-up window with a small form.


  5. Choose a previously created list from the dropdown and click Add or create a new list by filling in the Name box.


  6. If you created a new list, choose from the public or private option and click on Create and add. Private is the default option.

Note: Public Lists are visible to all users of the platform and private lists are visible only to the creator of the private lists.
