If you are off campus, you must log in with your PirateID and Passphrase to access many of our online resources. You are able to search One Search and save articles to folders without logging in. BUT, if you close that browser, those articles will be gone.

One option here is to email your saved articles to yourself. If you are in a database, you may be able create a free account to be able to permanently save your articles to a folder. You must create this account with each database provider. For example: If you are using an EBSCO database, you only need to create one account for all EBSCO databases. The same may be true for ProQuest, etc. You can usually find the name of the database provider on the page you are led to when you choose a database or article.

The easiest method of saving your articles is by using RefWorks. This is a free citation management software that is provided for all ECU students, faculty, and staff. Most of our platforms can export to RefWorks. You can find a libguide tutorial for RefWorks through our research guides page or by searching the FAQs. You can also watch a video tutorial on RefWorks below.
