Tip: Save relevant sources into the LionSearch temporary folder by clicking on the small folder icon found to the right of the item.  When you're finished compiling sources, click on the folder icon at the top of the screen and email or print the references so you can easily add them to your project. 
Don’t lose your work!  Unless you sign up for a Flow account found in the top right corner, items are saved in LionSearch ONLY for your current session.  You won’t be able to go back later and see a list of saved items.
