"Add to Folder"

If you are sorting through a long list of results, you can add relevant articles to a folder. The items you select will only be available "in the folder" for the duration of your Internet session. However, you can sign in to have those items saved "in the folder" and available for use at a later. Notice the sign in option in the top right corner.
