Facets and "My Library"



Facets allow the user to narrow the scope of their search results. After a Google Scholar search has been performed, the  facet options will appear to the left of the search results. 

The facets can be used to limit the results to a certain publishing date, or to sort by the most recent articles. The user may  also choose to exclude patents and citations from their results. 

My Library: 

Google Scholar includes a "My Library" feature, which allows the user to save articles to their personal Google Account. To  save an  article to "My Library," click the save link beneath the search result. 

These saved articles can be accessed by clicking the "My Library" link on facet panel.
