Creating Article Alerts Using Library Databases

Many library databases will alert you when new records matching your search criteria (e.g., journal title or keywords) are added to the database.

  • Click on the “alert” or “RSS” links on the database results pages. You may need to save your search or view your search history in order to access these features.
  • You will be asked to create a free account with the database provider.

These short video tutorials show you how to set up alerts in specific databases:
