Pinning a record in UAlbany's Search tool enables you to perform actions on the record, such as e-mailing or printing. 

Just for current session:  Do your search and pin the records you want.  (Each record must be pinned individually.) Go to My Favorites by selecting the pin button at the top right of the page. Under Saved Records, find and select the records you want to perform an action on. (Multiple records can be selected with one click here.) Then, select the Push To (3 ellipses) button to see options. These pinned records will go away when you end the session.

If you want your work to be saved for another time, be sure to sign-in using your NetID/password prior to pinning records or saving your search. Here is how it works:

After signing in, pin your records or save your search ("Save Query").  Note that after you "Save Query" you can request to be notified via e-mail when new materials match your saved search. 

To access pinned records and saved searches at a subsequent session, first sign in. Then, go to My Favorites by selecting the pin button at the top right of the page. You will then see both the Saved Records and Saved Searches options.
