Don't Get Left Behind! Use automated features to keep up to date on your topic.
There's no need for you to continually rerun searches in databases nor do daily checks in your favorite journals. You can have databases, journals and news sites automatically alert you to new material on your topic or area of research.
In this guide we'll show you how easy it is to use these features so the databases and journals do the work for you. All you'll have to do is read.
Email Alerts: Articles Want to know whenever an article is published on your research topic or by a colleague, competitor, or organization? You can set up a database search so that each time the database is updated (usually weekly), your search will be run against the new items. You'll receive the results via an email.
Email Alerts: Journals Is there an important journal in your field that you need to monitor? You can set up an alert so that each time a new issue of a journal is published (and in some cases, every time an individual article becomes available) you'll receive an email.
RSS Feeds Prefer an RSS feed rather than e-mail? Many publishers now offer RSS feed services instead of email alerts.
Apps & More Special services for tablet and smartphone users.
Note: In most cases, results from email alerts and RSS feeds should be used while on-campus as the full-text links in the alerts/feeds will not work from off-campus; to access the full text of articles/journal alerts from off-campus, use the Libraries'Journal Title Lookup.
