Auto Alerts

Many resources now support Auto Alerts. Auto Alerts are e-mails automatically sent to you by a database provider when criteria that you set through the database are met. Some “triggers” may include a database returning new results from a saved search or a new issue or journal becoming available in a database. Some databases provide many other alert options, as well.
