  1. Select the desired items by clicking the appropriate check boxes on the left.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of your search results page and specify which records you want to save: all of the records on the current page, only the records you've checked on the current page, or all of the records you've checked on multiple pages.
  3. To save the selected items to your Bookbag for later viewing, click Add record(s) to: My Portal Bookbag.
  4. You will be prompted to log in to My Portal, if you have not already done so. A confirmation message will appear, indicating how many records you've saved.
