Current Awareness

Information on how to receive the latest information on your area of interest

Introduction

With massive amounts of health information being generated each year, how does a clinician keep abreast of new developments in their field? Alerts keep you up-to-date with new research in your field.

Journal Alerts. Often called eToC's or Tables of Contents Alerts. Get alerts to new content from your favourite journals delivered straight to your inbox. This works best if there are a limited number of journals with high relevancy for you.

Subject Alerts. Receive alerts for newly published material on your chosen topic from multiple journals.

Browzine. Read journals on your phone, tablet or desktop, Browzine allows you to create a portable bookshelf of journals from the library's collection to browse or read across your devices.

Alert services. Many organisations put out bulletins of new developments in specific fields.

Citation alerts. Be alerted when a certain paper is cited.

 

Contact the library if you would like an alert set up for your team

OR

Set them up yourself - use the tabs on the left of this page
