A saved search (search strategy) keeps a record of your search, so you can repeat it later.

To use your saved searches – sign into the catalogue and click on ‘Go to my favourites’.

Look at the tab for ‘SAVED SEARCHES’  

Create a back-up

Take a screenshot.  If you lose your saved strategy – you will need to refer to this screenshot to re-create the search.  When you have re-created the search, you can save the strategy as you did previously.
