If you use an iPad, you can get current (and archived) issues from some of the journals we subscribe to.
Here's a good article from the Chronicle on keeping up with professional journal reading.
Consult the Libraries' complete list of journals to see if we have your desired titles. If you'd like some help figuring out if your desired journals have a table-of-contents or search alert as described in the article, contact your liaison librarian.
Many UST databases include the ability to send users alerts to new content via email or RSS feeds. This may take the form of:
There are various ways to receive these alerts. The easiest way is to set up an RSS news feed and get tables of contents sent to that one place via the A-Z list of journal titles.
The other, more involved way is to set up alerts through each provider. These current awareness services are available at no charge, but typically require users to register for a free account with the database provider.
Each provider handles this differently and not all providers offer this service. But each provider that does has a HELP link with instructions for setting up alerts.
We encourage students, faculty, and staff to use these tools to keep up to date on the literature of their field. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact your liaison librarian.
