Help for Saved Searches:
What is a saved search?

This feature allows you to save searches that you create on the Advanced Search page. In addition to the ability to re-run your searches while you are logged in, this feature allows you to have new resources that match your searches emailed to you at a frequency you specify, up to once per day. For example, if you want to receive an email that gives you all new resources on "applied math," you could receive a weekly email listing new resources on "applied math" added to AMSER.

How do I create a saved search?

To create a saved search, click Advanced Search on the navigation bar. Towards the bottom of the Advanced Search screen, you will see a button labeled Save next to the Search button. Once you have entered a search that you wish to save, click this button. This will take you to a page on which you may name your new search and choose how often, if ever, to receive emails with resources matching your search. Once these details are to your liking, click Continue at the bottom of the page. Your search is now saved. You can re-run your search by going back to the Advanced Search page and selecting your search from the bottom of the page.

How do I modify my saved searches?

Begin by clicking the Manage Your Searches link at the bottom of the Advanced Search page. This will load a page containing information about all of your saved searches. Clicking the Edit button next to a search will load a page where you can modify the details of your saved search. Click the Save button when you are satisfied with your modifications.

How do I delete a saved search?

Begin by clicking the Manage Your Searches link at the bottom of the Advanced Search page. Clicking the Delete button next to any of your searches will delete that search.

Why do I keep getting emails about new resources?

You probably have a saved search or bulletin sending you an email listing new resources. To disable, click the Manage Your Searches link at the bottom of the Advanced Search page. Click on the saved search that you are getting emails for, then select Never from the dropdown menu to stop receiving emails about that search. To change your bulletin settings, see the Bulletin section of the help files.
