Alert services from article databases

Most article databases or e-journal collections subscribed by the Library offer alert services so that notifications of newly published articles can be automatically sent to you on a regular basis.

There are different types of alert services: 

Once you set up the alert services, you may be notified of new articles via:

  • Email 

You are usually, but not always, required to register for a free personal database account before you create email alerts.

Registration of a personal database account is usually not required to set up RSS feeds.

You need to install an RSS reader/aggregator on your computer or to register at an RSS reader website beforehand.

Note: You can access the journal articles via these e-mail notifications or RSS links if you are on campus. If you are off campus, please access the desired journals or databases via our Library homepage or City LibraryFind using your EID and AD/LAN password. Read more here.
