Current awareness tools
- Selected New Books and Other Items Purchased by the Library
- Search alerts, web feeds, and RSS: Many academic journals and websites offer search alerts (including RSS feeds) as a convenience to their audiences.
BrowZine brings scholarly, academic journal content together from multiple publishers and platforms into a single place, where you can save your favorite journals, view the tables of contents, and read or save articles, as new issues are released. Use the BrowZine App to set up table of contents alerts for your favorite journals. Use BrowZine Web to browse recent issues of journals by subject. A My Bookshelf feature is coming soon to BrowZine Web.
Liaison Librarians are also good contacts to learn about websites and other publication developments in your discipline.
