Once you’ve signed in, you can save documents, tag and annotations in your personal folder.
0:46
You can view documents you’ve saved and tags or annotations you’ve created by clicking
0:46
the “My Folder” link in the banner. When you’ve found a document you’re interested
0:47
in, you can save it and return to it later. To save a document, look for the folder icon.
0:56
Notice the folder icon in your search results and when viewing a document. Click the folder
1:02
icon to save the document in your personal folder.
1:06
To access your saved document, click the “My Folder” link
1:09
and then select “Documents.” From here, click the document title to return
1:14
to the document. Check the box and click “Remove Selected” to remove a document for your
1:26
saved items list. When viewing a document, you can make personal
1:36
notes or highlight areas of the document. To add a note, navigate to the page image
1:52
you want to annotate and then look for the Annotate icon.
2:08
Click the “Annotate” icon and then use your mouse to highlight the area of interest.
2:30
Under Annotations, in the right side bar enter a title for the annotation (which is required)
2:37
and enter any optional notes in the text box. And then click Submit.
2:51
Your annotation is saved in your personal folder. Note: Annotations are private: they
2:51
are never visible to the public. To access your saved annotation click the
2:51
“My Folder” link and then select “Annotations.” Here you’ll find details on the document
2:51
you annotated. Click the annotation title to return to the annotation.
2:51
You can edit the annotation or click “Delete” to remove the note.
2:54
Tags are user-created keywords…usually only one or two words… that you can use to categorize
3:09
documents that you want to return to. To tag an item look for the Tags text boxes
3:10
at the bottom of the page. Since tags apply to the entire document, use annotations when
3:12
you want to reference a specific page image. Enter a term and click “Enter.”
3:14
To view tags you’ve created click the “My Folder” link and then select “Tags.”
3:31
Here you’ll find the public and private tags you’ve created. The number of documents
4:00
associated with each tag is displayed. Click on a tag to view a list of documents that
4:15
have this tag. Click on the document title to view the document.
4:16
From here you can add additional tags or delete tags you’re created.
