EMAIL ALERT SERVICES

Many databases offer an email alerting service for users. Some databases allow for saved searches and update users via email when new materials match preselected search terms. Other databases offer Table of Contents updates sending users information on the contents of journals they are interested in. Below is a list of databases available at UWM Libraries that offer email alerting services. Brief descriptions of their services and instructions for setting up alerts are included.

In addition to these databases there are a number of electronic journals to which the UWM Libraries hold direct subscriptions that may offer alerts or RSS feeds.

For a topical listing, see Databases that Provide E-mail Alerts by Broad Subject Categories.
