The tricky thing about saving articles within databases is that, although you are logged in to the campus network (the CU Intranet) in order to access the databases, you must login separately to a personalized account that you create within the database, which is another step, with a different function. It's possible the articles you saved went to a "session" folder for you as a guest user, and were not saved after the session ended.

For example, when using EBSCOhost databases, you'll see this message in the Folder Contents screen:

To store these items in the folder for a future session, Sign In to My EBSCOhost.

"My EBSCOhost" is the vendor specific personalized account that you can create, to save preferences and to organize your research within that particular database (or database vendor).
