Alerts of New Materials


Library Catalog
Be notified automatically via e-mail when the Libraries acquire materials that match your saved search(es). Saving preferred searches and setting up alerts are part of My Account.

Article and New Issue Alerts
Most article databases (Cambridge Scientific Abstracts, CINAHL, Historical Abstracts, MLA, PsycINFO, etc.) and journal providers (ScienceDirect, Springer, Wiley, etc.) allow you to create a personal account, save searches, and automatically be notified of new articles or journal issues.

In the Libraries' Ejournal list (TDNet) you can set up alerts for articles or new journal issues. Help with TDNet alerts.

Citation Alerts
In the Web of Science database you can be notified whenever your work is cited.

Further Assistance
Contact your library liaison if you have questions on creating personalized alerts of new materials.
