DragonQuest Tutorial

Tutorial for searching DragonQuest, the library's online catalog and Discovery Service

Sharing Search Results

Sharing/Saving from the Search Results screen

You can share or save lists of search results using the “Share” dropdown option on your list of DragonQuest search results.

You can also share through a social media account using numerous options listed within this dropdown menu.*


Sharing from the Tools menu

Social media and permalink/persistent link sharing are available within the Tools menu as you view an item within the collection.


*Librarian Tip: Sharing does not necessarily mean that those who can view your social media account can access full text of a resource. Users will still have to sign in using their DragonQuest credentials to access the material, so they must be members of the TU community to fully gain access to the resource.

Page Options must be changed each time you enter DragonQuest. They are not saved for you once you close out of your browser screen.

Using Google Drive

You can save an individual item to your Google Drive by using the Google Drive option located on the Tools menu. Also make sure that...

  1. Your browser is set to allow pop-ups.
  2. You are signed into your university email account.

 

If you are unsure how to access Google Drive when signed in to your university Gmail account, we recommend that you view the following tutorial from Google Support: https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2423485?hl=en
