Once you are in Westlaw, look in the upper right hand corner for the icon which looks like a person. Hover your mouse over that icon. Then, in the box that appears, click on Westlaw Preferences. and click on that.

In the box that appears, click on the tab labeled History.
Then, click on the box next to Email detailed session summary at sign off.  
Then, type your email address into the To box.
Click on Save.
The History link will show your recent search and recent documents but, it will not email anything.
Once you are done searching, hover your mouse over the person icon again.  This time, click on Sign Off.  If you close out Westlaw before clicking on the Sign Off button, your search will not be emailed to you. So, be sure you do that!
The email you receive will have time information about the session and a word document attached.  Download the word document.
The word document will have information about documents you clicked on.
Contact the Library if you have more questions.
