A common feature on the web is the ability to set up a personal account and receive updated information. Alerts are most commonly delivered via periodic e-mails, but sometimes an RSS feed is an option. For library resources there are two common ways to approach alerting.
A journal alert will nearly always offer you a table of contents for the newly published issue. Links to the full text of the articles are sometimes included in the alert.
BrowZine -- The library recommends and supports BrowZine for setting up current awareness alerting for journals.
Journal TOCs -- This free web database, Journal TOCs, can be useful if you want to have alerting for a journal not included in BrowZine.
We are testing the alerting feature on our new system. When it is working properly we will update this box.
