What to do with your search results ?

I had an enquiry recently about what can be done with results obtained from a database search on Proquest.

There are quite a lot of options, especially if you create a personalised My Research account:

Create an alert – Create and schedule alerts to deliver new documents matching your search as they become available in ProQuest. Create a My Research account to modify, delete, or view all of your alerts. This is good for current awareness when new articles are published and the alerts can appear monthly etc.

Create an RSS feed for newly added documents.

Save searches, tag, organise and share your research in the My Research area.

Email your results to yourself with links to articles included.

Print off or save useful articles.

Save the results in HTML, PDF.

Export the results to a reference management package such as RefWorks.
