Using e-Shelf

Adding item records to your e-Shelf is a great way to stay organized and develop a carefully selected group of records for future use, such as a course reading list. There are several ways to add an item or a whole page of item results to your e-Shelf. From within your e-Shelf, you may create folders to organize your saved items, email items/folders, print citations, push items/folders to citation management systems (i.e. EndNote), and more. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have questions about using your e-Shelf.
