You can save articles in both the catalog (Search@CULibraries) and individual databases. It looks a bit different depending on which search tool you are using. If you’re using Search@CULibraries, use the eShelf feature. See how it works here:

If you’re using an individual database, you’ll need to create a separate account with that database. Your CU account isn’t the same thing. If you don't create an account with the database, your "saved" articles will only be saved for that search session. In other words, once you close that window or power down, your articles won't be saved anymore.  

Each database vendor (ProQuest, EBSCO, Gale, etc) has their own style for saving articles, so it might look a little different in each. For example, see how to save articles in ProQuest databases:
