What Are Bookmarks?

Bookmarks are used to save a website address for quick access in the future. Other similar terms that are commonly used are "Favourites" or "Shortcuts". Bookmarks can be:

  • Added/Deleted from a web browser or the home screen on your computer.
  • Edited and renamed.
  • Organized into different categories and folders.

Note: It would be a good idea to bookmark the SHA Library website if you haven't already. We don't recommend bookmarking any of the links to our databases because those links often change. Always access databases from the Library website to ensure you are using the correct and most recent link.
