Mobile app users have many different ways to find and organize scholarly blog content using the ACI Scholarly Blog Index mobile app. In addition to searching for a keyword or phrase, you can search or browse by author name, blog title, university or institutional affiliation, and Library of Congress classification. Search suggestions will appear below the search box as you type.


Search

You can search right from the app's homepage, but you can also search from within topics, categories, and even other searches. Tap the magnifying glass icon in the upper-right corner to perform a search from any page within the app. In the search box, simply type a keyword or phrase, and you'll see any scholarly blog posts containing that search term or phrase. 


Search by word or phrase, or enclose a phrase in quotation marks to find results with that exact phrase. To leave out unwanted results, you can put a hyphen right before a keyword to eliminate posts containing that keyword from your search results.


Bookmarks

You can bookmark any scholarly blog post you find in the app for later viewing or sharing. To bookmark a post, tap the bookmark icon in the lower-left corner of any article page. This will save that blog post to your personal bookmark collection. To access your bookmarks, just tap on My Bookmarks in the app Menu.


You can also search your bookmarks using the bookmark search bar. In the search field, simply type a keyword or phrase, and you'll see any personal bookmarks containing that search term or phrase. 


Lists

Lists are ideal if you intend to organize more than one post by topic, intended use, or other category. While you can't currently create a new list or add an article to an existing list within the app, you can access your lists by tapping on My Lists in the app Menu. You can also search your lists using the list search bar. In the search field, simply type a keyword or phrase, and you'll see posts from any existing lists that you follow or maintain that contain that search term or phrase. 


In addition, you can easily search for public Lists curated by others by tapping Search Lists in the app menu. In the search box, simply type a keyword or phrase, and you'll see any public lists with descriptions or posts containing that search term or phrase.  Just tap Follow this list to follow a desired list. You will also receive email notifications whenever new articles are added to ACI lists that you follow or maintain.


Sharing Tools

The sharing tools offer app users a convenient way to share content for use in course assignments, research projects, and other collaborations. To access the sharing tools, tap the sharing icon in the lower-right corner of any article page. The sharing icon will present options that are available to you for sharing and productivity tools. These may differ depending on your mobile operating system, existing apps and downloads, and other settings.
