Current awareness services and tools are a convenient and efficient way to stay informed about the latest research in areas that you're interested in.
Current awareness tools
- Selected New Books and Other Items Purchased by the Library This list displays selected new books and other items added to the Library's collection during the past month, with the option to limit to by department/subject area and library location.
- Search alerts, citation alerts, and new content/table of contents alerts: Many academic journals and databases offer these handy features as a convenience to researchers.
BrowZine brings academic journal content from multiple publishers and platforms into a single interface. You can save your favorite journals, view the tables of contents, set up new issue alerts, and read or save articles as new issues are released.
Your department's Liaison Librarian will also be able to assist you with choosing and setting up the best current awareness approaches and tools for your research area.
