Current Awareness and Alerts Services

There are a wide range of current awareness services that will help keep you informed when new information is published in your area of interest. Once you set up an account, the information is pushed at a specified frequency (daily, weekly, monthly) via email or an RSS feed. Some services require you to set up a free account to receive alerts.


Why set up an alert or feed?

Alerts and RSS feeds are useful for staying current. These are the main reasons why it's a good idea to get them set up and keep current with them.
  • Current Awareness - These services can help you keep up with articles in your subject area of interest and the contents of newly published journals
  • Customized Content - Alert services allow you to control the information delivered, the amount of information and the regularity of received information
  • Time Management - Information is automatically delivered to you without rerunning the same search all the time
  • Organization - These services can help you to maintain a personal database in bibliographic management software, like EndNote Web
