After a user has retrieved a satisfactory set of results from an online service, they may wish to save them for future reference or manipulation and use within other computer applications. NBA’s should ensure that users are provided with suitable options enabling export of results in a variety of popular formats (e.g. MARC, ISBD, standard citation form etc.). These could include:

  • Direct printing of results for reference in different levels of detail (e.g. brief, detailed)
  • Saving to a local file for reference or manipulation or online file set for cumulating with future search results
  • Email of results to the user’s preferred account
  • Supply to online or local citation management systems (e.g. Endnote, Refworks etc.)
  • Supply of record links to online tagging sites (e.g. Delicious)
