Select records

Engineering Village allows you to select records on the Search results page by doing the following:

Once selected, the records are transferred to the Selected records page. You can add up to 500 records.

Note

You can select records on one page, go to another page and select additional records, and refine your search results. All records you select, regardless of which page, can be emailed, printed, downloaded, or saved depending upon which option you select.

Up to 5,000 results can be retrieved from any search. The display indicates the number of results that were located, but only the first 5,000 are available to be selected.

View selected records

Click Selected records in the top navigation bar. The Selected records page opens, where you can view your records in the format you specified (Citation format, Abstract format, or Detailed format).

NoteThe Citation format view is the default display to view your Selected records.

Specify the number of records per page

The default number of records that you would like to display per page is 25. You can increase this to 50 or 100 if that many search results are present.

Click the number beside the Display label to open a drop-down to select either 50 or 100 results. The page refreshes and shows the new number of selected records. Your new setting stays until you end your session.

NoteYou can specify your preference for the default number of results that display per page on the Results tab of the My preferences page.

Select a sort type

From the Sort by drop-down on the Selected records page, you may choose a method for sorting the records that display on this page.

The sort options that appear in the drop-down correspond to the sort options (e.g. Date (Newest), Author (A-Z), Cited by Patents (Most), etc.) for the combination of databases that you selected in your Selected records result set.

Email, print, or download your records

You can email, print, or download the records that you have selected on this page in the page format and sort type that you have selected.

NoteWhen downloading your records to Mendeley, the sorted documents will append to the top of your default document folder list when Mendeley is launched. You can use the Mendeley document sort feature after your Engineering Village records are added to your Mendeley folder.

Save selected records

Documents remain in Selected records only during your current session (the time before you log out). See Saving records to a personal folder to save records for later use.

NoteWhen saving your records to Your Folder(s), the documents will append to the documents in your folder, and will not be re-sorted. Thus, if you changed the sort type for your selected documents, your updated personal folder will not reflect this change.

Remove records from the Selected records page

Whether you view the Selected records page in Citation format, Abstract format, or Detailed format, you can easily remove any or all records:
