Organize your Saved Items

With all of your sources saved in My Favourites, you can easily sort and tag each item with one or more labels. Labels can be any word, phrase, or combination of characters. For instance, if you are a student, you might want to tag articles with a course code. 

To tag a source, click Add Labels.
