The dashboard in ZipSearch allows you to save articles, rerun searches, and organize your research. To use most of the features in the dashboard will require an EBSCO account (that is separate from your university account). You can still view recent articles and searches without the additional login.
To create an account:
To use your dashboard in the future you will have to sign in with this EBSCO account.
To bookmark an article, select the ribbon on the top right of each search result. Once you save an article, the ribbon will change colors.
To see your bookmarked articles go to the dashboard overview and look at the saved section. From the overview, you will also be able to see your recent searches and recently viewed articles, which you can also bookmark. After bookmarking, they will appear in the saved section. Selecting a saved or recent search will run the search with the exact keywords and the same filters.
To remove an article or search from your saved items, select the ribbon again or select the three vertical dots and select the delete option.
To create a project to organize your saved articles and searches select the 'New Project' button on the dashboard overview
Then fill out the form to easily remember what class the project is for, the due date, the requirements of the project (the due date and description are optional fields).
To add articles to a project select the three vertical dots at the top right of a search result and select the 'Add to Project' option.
Then choose what project you want to add the article to.
Adding a saved search to a project works very similarly to adding a saved article. In the dashboard overview look at your saved your recent searches, select the three vertical dots, and add to the desired project. Selecting the project will show all of the articles and searches you have add to it.
