Can users reuse previous searches during a FirstSearch session?

Applies to
  • FirstSearch

All previous searches performed during the current session in any database are available for reuse. To see previous searches, select the Search tab at the top of the FirstSearch screen and then select the Previous searches in the top bar. Users can select a previous search to redo it and view its results again. Or, they can combine a previous search with additional search terms or with other previous searches and view the results of the combined search.

After performing a search, click the Save Search link on the Results screen to save your search results. Those search results can then be re-used when you click the Previous Searches link on the FirstSearch Search screen.

Note: The Save Search feature is available to you after you use the My Account function to set up an account with FirstSearch.
