Despite being an excellent tool for students and academics, Google Scholar is not just for them, as it can help many curious people with their research. Do you know how to gather all the articles you want to keep without having to download them?

Today, we explain how you can create a Library in Google Scholar.

Google Scholar is a platform that, according to what the user wants, presents the results of scientific articles, master's and doctoral theses, relevant academic works, books, abstracts, and other types of material prepared by academic and professional institutions. There, it is possible to find up-to-date scientific evidence from the most varied areas of investigation.

Especially for students and academics, this is a tool that can be very useful. In fact, knowing its features allows us to use Google Scholar in an optimized way, saving time and facilitating research (whatever it is and how big it is).

One of the features of this platform is the possibility of creating a Library to aggregate the contents that we intend to keep. That's what we're going to teach you how to do.

For organizational reasons, it may not be advantageous to download all documents that come your way during an investigation. Therefore, creating a library to keep the ones we will come back to later can be a good practice.

To start bringing your Library to life, you first need to access the Google Scholar and type the topic you want in the search bar.

Once on the results page, you must select the option save (illustrated with a little star), present in all the contents presented.

After clicking on Save, a pop-up will appear for you to select the folder where you want to save this content. The folders will have the names you want to give them, they will have the labels that you like best.
