Alerting services

  • Keep up to date with publishing in your research field with Table of Contents (ToC) and Saved Search Alerts.
  • ToC Alerts email you the Table of Contents of journals each time a new issue is published.
  • Saved Search Alerts let you save a favourite search and have the results emailed to you regularly.
  • To view the full-text of articles and records included in the alerts, off-campus users should access the database or ejournal collection via the links on the Library database lists. If you're on-campus, use the links in the alerts to view the full-text.
  • The Browzine app for iOS and Android tablets (phones to come) makes browsing Tables of Contents and downloading PDFs faster than via a PC or laptop
