In most of the SLU bibliographic databases (PubMed, CINAHL, Scopus, etc.) you can save your actual search strategy (especially if your search is complicated) and then re-run the search later without having to re-type the terms. This is especially useful for any type of ongoing research: dissertations, final projects, or graduate assistant work with faculty.
Look for a Register, Login, or Sign In link at the top of the database page. You will be asked to register or set up a personal account--this allows you to save your searches. Contact me if you have questions or need any help with setting up personal accounts.
