databases. (For example, conduct a search in CINAHL and conduct it again in PsycArticles.)

• Print, e-mail or save collected results from the folder. When you want to print, e-mail or save several results, you should always save them to the folder, then print, e-mail or save from the folder. (You can still print, e-mail, or save individual results from the open article or citation.)
