Using Folders and Notes in SuperSearch

Folders are a great way to organize your research and streamline the process of reviewing your search results. You can access individual articles and eBooks, saved searches, checked-out eBooks, and more in your SuperSearch folder.
Create custom folders to organize resources for different assignments or courses.
  1. Select the Folder icon (in the upper right side of the SuperSearch page).
  2. Select "My Custom" (left toolbar).
  3. Select "New."
  4. Add a clever name.
  5. Select "Save."
As you review your search results, add useful-looking resources to your specialized folders.
Folder contents can be shared with colleagues.
  1. Select your clever custom folder name.
  2. Select "Share." (You can make access to your folder password protected.) 
  3. Enter email addresses.
  4. Select "Invite."

New as of August 2013: In SuperSearch, you can create and save notes regarding specific resources, including articles, books, eBooks, and videos. Anything that you can find in SuperSearch, you can create a note for!

How to create a note:
  1. Log in to your personal SuperSearch account.
  2. Find a resource; select its title (this takes you to the item's record).
  3. Select the "Create Note" link in the toolbar to the right.
  4. Select the "New Note" button at the top of the record.
  5. Type a note in the space that pops up.
  6. Select the "Save" button.
  7. Success! Your note is saved and can be accessed and edited anytime by selecting the "Folder" icon in the upper right side of the SuperSearch page. Your note will also show up automatically when you open the item about which you wrote the note.
