Once you have added items to the Clipboard, a link to the items is posted just below the search box on the right hand side of the results screen.
Items placed on the clipboard have a red "Item in clipboard" notice at the bottom of the abstract.
At the end of your search session, click on the Clipboard: # items link to go to the Clipboard page. Use the Send to options on the Clipboard page to move your selections to a permanent place.
