Why Set Up an Alert?
Alerts help you keep current with new literature in your field.
- Current Awareness -- Alert yourself to new articles in your area of interest
- Customized Content -- You decide what topics, tables of contents, or citations to include in the alert
- Time Management -- Instead of rerunning the same search every month, get alerts delivered to you
- Organization -- Alerts can help feed a personal database of citations in bibliographic management programs, like EndNote
