Online Articles Search: Save Article Citations

Learn how to use the Online Articles search, the Libraries' discovery tool that searches most of our databases simultaneously.


Email Article Citations

When you have selected articles for a project or paper, you'll also want to save their citations to put in the bibliography of your paper/project. You can email the citations to yourself by following these steps:

1. Add an article to a Saved Items folder by clicking on the folder icon to the right of the article's description. Repeat this for as many articles as you plan to use.

Export Citations to RefWorks (or other reference managers)

You can also save citations for articles by sending them to a reference manager, e.g., RefWorks, EndNote, Zotero. RefWorks is the manager available to all UNT students, faculty and staff through the UNT Libraries. Visit the RefWorks library guide to learn how to create your free account and about the manager's basic functions.

Follow the steps above in Email Article Citations through opening the Saved Items folder. Then do the following:

1. Locate the Export To dropdown menu at the top of the screen
