Staying Alert Without Caffeine

Would you like to keep up to date with journals and articles in your areas of interest?
The Meriam Library subscribes to a number of indexes and databases that offer electronic alert services. Many different types of alert services are available including:

Table of contents alerts: Table of contents alerts are email updates of the table of contents of the current issues of the journals you specify.

Saved search alerts: Saved search alerts are email or RSS notifications of new articles matching previously submitted searches.

Alert services vary between databases. To find out what databases offer alert services, consult our Guide To Journal Alert Services. For specific instructions on how to set up an alert within a particular database, go to the help pages within the database and follow the instructions for saving searches and/or setting up alerts and/or RSS feeds.

If you would like help setting up alerts, you can also contact your Subject Librarian.

Stay alert!
