7. Printing or Saving Results
There are as many different ways to print results as there are database services. You may need to select:
- Which set or query number to display - the default is often to the last set of retrieved references. To go back to display previous queries the process is usually to "search" for the query number.
- What format to print in - bibliographic (Author, Title, Source) or full record. The display and download defaults are often full record; the print default is usually bibliographic citation
- Which records to print - this is usually a choice of:
- the entire list
- only those records marked, flagged, tagged, or collected
- one at a time (this is not recommended as it wastes a lot of paper)
The details of these commands and where to display, on screen, paper, or diskette, are covered in the guide sheets for the individual systems.
If you are working on a large, continuing bibliography you may want to consider saving the references and keeping them in a database. There are bibliographic database programs which may be useful.
