My FR Clip ‘N Save

When we launched we put in place the foundation for a more customized user experience. Our new “My FR” feature (see page top tabs) lets you flag articles of interest for later reference. We think it is a very simple solution for organizing ongoing research. There’s no more need to keep multiple tabs open or print reams of paper to save and compare items.

Here’s how it works: Look for the flag icon when browsing or searching. Click the flag to “clip” documents onto your personal clipboard to save them, and create an unlimited number of folders to organize clipped items. To save articles for viewing in later web sessions and to keep your folder structure intact, just sign up as a My FR user. Each time you log in, your documents and folders will be there. You can also move items from one folder to another as your research trail grows or changes. Your My FR articles and folders will be saved for as long as you want them.

Commitment issues? No problem. We designed the tool to let you try out the clipboard feature without creating an account or logging in.
