Saving Searches

It will take time to finalize your search strategy.

You need to brainstorm keywords and discover subject headings.  

While scanning a relevant article, you may find another keyword you hadn't considered. Rather than having to type your entire search over again, you can rerun it, and add in the new keywords.

Also, as it takes time to develop each search in different databases, it is a "best practice" to run all your searches on the same day, so that your data collection (ie your searches) is collected at once.  Saving each search is the easiest way to be able to run them on the same day.

The videos available through the link below provide information on how to save your searches as well as how to edit your searches.
