To show your search history, there are a couple of options.

  1. use “Print Screen” to paste the search history table into your Word document.
    1. Hit the PrtScn button on your keyboard (next to the F12 button) which captures the whole screen. 
    2. If you have a Mac use this: Apple (Command) Key +Shift+3   or Apple (Command) Key +Shift+4.     The ‘4’ option allows you to just capture a portion of the screen and the ‘3’ option will capture the whole screen. 

And then paste it straight into your word document. To crop the image, use the “Picture Tools” which has a cropping tool.

Alternatively, from Medline, choose your article and select it. Then scroll back to the top of the results list where it says “Print”

That will thow up another screen where you need to select the “Citation + Abstract” and “Include Search History” options: (and then click on “Print Preview”). That will provide you with the search history and the Abstract on one screen which you can print or capture the screen.

Hi Ami, 

If you would like some help or some pointers for how to search for information for Evidence Based Practice, I'd suggest having a look at the Study Guide we have made.

To get there from the Library homepage, go to the Help link in the top banner, then choose Study Guides, then Nursing, Midwifery & Health, and finally choose the Evidence Based Practice link.

If you're wanting help with saving your search history, this varies from database to database. Some will let you print or export your search history, but for others you will need to do a screen capture. If you'd like help with saving your search history from one particular database, please reply here and I will give you instructions.
