Introducing Clipboard

If you use Dialog with an Athens password to search for information then you may have noticed a mysterious blank search called "clipboard" that appears in the search history before you've looked for anything at all.

This is a nifty new service on Dialog. Basically it allows you to collect the items you really want from the results of several searches and stick them together on the clipboard - rather like a basket on a shopping website. Look for the "add to clipboard" buttons when you are looking at results.

To look at the clipboard go to the search page and click on "show titles" on the search line for "clipboard". You can then view and delete items, and save, email or print the clipboard just as you would any other search.

If you need help then please contact the library team.
