Virtual Boot Camp: Keeping Up to Date: Searching While You Are Sleeping (Alerts and Notifications)

Wednesday, July 22, 2020, 2:00pm to 2:30pm

Are you overwhelmed trying to keep up on the recent research done in your area? Many of the library’s databases allow you to set up alerts and notifications. Alerts can tell you when there is a new issue of your favorite journal, when work by a particular author is available, when a specific article is cited, and when new articles are published that match a saved search. These searches will run automatically overnight and will send you an email with the results. Learn how to set up these alerts and notifications so you can really learn to search while you sleep!

Taught by Kari Kozak, Head, Lichtenberger Engineering Library.
