Using the Folder
As you add items to the folder, you can click the Folder link to review items have been added.
You can store all of the following to your folder: search result items, persistent links to searches, saved searches, search alerts, journal alerts, and web pages.
From the folder you can then print, e-mail or save multiple results at the same time. If you have signed in to your personal account, any items you collect in your folder are automatically saved at the end of the session. If you have not signed in to your personal account and you end your session, or it times out due to inactivity, the folder is automatically cleared.
By default, items in the folder are sorted by article name. You can use the Sort By: Date option present folder items by date (in descending order).
Note: Your library administrator decides whether the personal account feature is available.
SRC allows you to create custom folders in your personal folder area. Using custom folders you can better manage and access items saved to your personal folder area by organizing items according to topic, project, class, etc. Custom folders can contain Kids Search items (articles, images, search alerts, etc) or custom sub-folders.
You can create as many custom folders as you require. After a folder is created, you can rename or move the folder. If you move a folder, all contents of the folder are moved along with it (items and sub-folders).
- Before using the custom folders feature, you must log in to your SRC personal account. Your library administrator decides whether the personal account feature is available.
- Only three levels of sub-folders nested within a folder are allowed. Folders created more than four levels deep (a top-level folder plus three sub-folders) are displayed at level four.
Helpful Tips about Folders
- Use your email address as your username
- Write down and save your password in a safe place
- Always remember to LOG IN and to LOG OUT of your folder account
- Otherwise, your articles are only saved for that session and will not be there when you return to your folder
