How do I save articles in my Library Search folder from one session to another?

I was using Library Search in the library and popped a number of articles into my folder. I thought I would print them when I got home. But when I re-logged back into my library account the folder was empty. What went wrong?

Unfortunately, folder contents in Library Search only last until you close your internet browser unless you create/login to a personal EBSCOhost account and save them. To create your free account, Use the Sign in to folder button that appears under the Library opening hours at the top right of the search results page.

 You will be offered the option to create a new account or login to an existing one.

Another way of making sure you don't lose helpful search results is to export them from your folder to a citation manager such as EndNote, Zotero or Mendeley before you finish your search session.
