Personal Accounts

Creating personal accounts for library resources allows you to:

  • receive email notifications for new issues of a specific journal (Table of Contents Alerts)
  • receive email notifications for articles published that meet a specific search criteria in a database
  • receive alerts when your articles are cited in
  • save searches that you can update and run again
  • save articles, book chapters, and other content for easy future reference.

Table of Contents Alerts

It is often helpful to receive alerts from specific journals when they publish new articles. There are a few easy ways to do this.

  1. Search for the journal title in our E-Journal finder.
  2. Access the journal via the provider listed.
    • Note: If our access isn't listed as 'to Present' then you won't be able to access the full text of the newest articles.
  3. Create an account with the journal or the provider that we have access to the journal form, e.g., Ovid, ClinicalKey, or EBSCO databases such as CINAHL or APA PsycARTICLES.
  4. Look for options to set alerts. You may see this as an option present in your personal account settings or on the journal page. For example:

             New England Journal of Medicine Journal Alerts

             Circulation Journal Alerts

             Telemedicine and e-Health Journal Alerts
