Current Awareness Tools

Current awareness tools, otherwise known as "search alerts" or "auto alerts", can help you stay up to date on the latest developments in your field. Your Information Specialist can set up an alert on a specific topic in a database and then you will automatically receive an email at a programmed time (daily, weekly, monthly, etc) with the latest published articles on your topic. 

Alternatively, you can also set up electronic Table of Contents or "eToC" for specific journals and have the table of contents of every new journal issue automatically emailed to you. RSS feeds can be set up for specific journals as well. 

All of these options are a great way to stay current with the literature in your field. Contact your Information Specialist to learn more or to have an alert set up for you!
