What is saving to my library?
Saving a paper to your library is a way to mark the paper as something you'd like to read later. You will see the option add other people's papers to your library. However, you can not add your own paper to your library.
While downloading a paper automatically adds a paper to your library, you can also directly add a paper to your library without downloading it. You can do that in two ways.
From the profile
Simply select "Save to Library" under the paper you wish to add to your library!
From the paper page
Select three dots next to the other paper action buttons, then select "Save to Library" from the drop-down menu.
Accessing Your Library
You can always access your library collection by selecting "Tools" in the top navigational bar, then selecting "Library."
You can also access your library page by clicking here. If at any time you want to remove a paper from your library, simply click "Saved to Library" on that paper and the document will be gone when you refresh.
If you have any bulk download paper groups, they will appear in the "bulk download" tab. If you don't have any bulk download groups, or you're thinking about upgrading to Academia Premium for bulk download, you can check out our article on bulk download here.
When you add a paper to your library, it may appear in the news feeds of your followers. Your followers may see a box that includes information about the paper you added.
If you do not wish for your followers to see your library activity in their news feed, you can turn this feature off in your privacy settings.
