Q. How do I add and remove items from My Favorites in BU Libraries Search?

  Aug 14, 2019

BU Libraries Search allows you to save items to My Favorites. My Favorites allows you to work with several items at a time, printing them, emailing them, sending them to a citation manager, or returning to access them later. Normally, items are only kept in My Favorites for the current session, but if you Sign In, you can save items permanently and organize them with tags.

Adding Items to My Favorites. To save an item to My Favorites, click on the pushpin icon next to the item’s name. The icon will be highlighted, the pushpin icon will spin and change color, and the item will be added to My Favorites.

Removing Items from My Favorites. To remove an item from My Favorites, click on the pushpin icon in the top right of the screen to view the list, then click the highlighted icon on the item.
