MyNCBI: Managing Search Results

The My NCBI “Collections” feature is a means of managing results from different searches.  PubMed recently made it easier to save items to a collection during a search.

The PubMed Abstract display now includes a “Save items” portlet, an easy way to add items to a My NCBI collection. My NCBI users that are signed in may click the Favorite button to add citations to a new My NCBI Favorites collection, or to another new or previously saved collection.  Clicking the star next to a collection name will automatically add the citation to the collection.
