Get Alerts from Higher Ed Journals

While the bulk of our Library collection is focused on resources for student use, the Library licenses several higher education periodicals for the professional development of faculty and staff.

The [Faculty & Staff Resources Subject Guide] has a [Professional Reading] tab that includes a selective list of many of those full-text periodicals.

Staying up-to-date in higher education doesn’t have to be hard or take a lot of time. You can set up email alerts to notify you when new issues of specific periodical titles are available online.  To learn more about setting up this option, click into a chosen ejournal and look for [Share => Create an alert], [Create Journal Alert] or [Create Alert]. Contact your liaison librarian with any questions.

Alerts are also possible within most [Research Databases]. Craft a good search strategy and create an alert to email you links to full-text articles on that topic whenever new ones are added to the database

Create a Google Alert

Did you ever wonder how some people always seem to know the latest news about a topic?  Well, you can be that person, too.  You can create a Google alert where you will receive email messages whenever matching news is published on the public internet.  It’s great for keeping up with your major paper topic, a future field of expertise, with family members, a favorite actor or musical group, your future car,  places you hope to visit, or,Google Alert example your hobby.

Go to Google Alerts,   login to your Google account, and set up your Google Search Alert.  You can select frequency, language, region, and number of results you wish to receive for each alert you set up.  And, it’s just as easy to turn off an alert when you get tired of it.

This is one of the tips librarians shared in our recent Google & Beyond Workshops.
