Journal Alerts and Search Alerts -- how to create

Search Alerts

What is a Search Alert? How can this help?

Search alerts are used when you want a database to "run" a search you have completed on a periodic basis. Having a search "run" daily, weekly, monthly etc. keeps you up-to-date with new material being published related to your search strategy.

Journal Alerts

A Journal Alert offers notification when the latest issue of a journal/publication is available in a journal database. An automatic e-mail notification can be used which can save valuable research time.




The different vendors always create video tutorials that are helpful.

Resources listed on these guides are compiled by librarians at the R.A. Williams Library. We accept content recommendations, and after review, may include suggested resources on a guide. Our time is limited, so we generally do not reply to unsolicited recommendations from individuals not affiliated with AdventHealth University or notify them regarding whether or not we have linked to suggested content.
