Search alerts allow you to save searches and have them run automatically with the results being sent to you periodically. Check who provides the database you use most often and follow the instructions below.
If your database is not from Ebsco, ProQuest, or Web of Science, contact your subject librarian for help.
Are you confused about the difference between journals and magazines? No problem, here is what to look for to determine which you have.
Journals: Content is written to inform the reader.
Magazines: Content is written to entertain the reader.
Although Briggs Library has an extensive collection, you may need items that are not available at the Library. No worries! You can request those articles, books, and other materials through Interlibrary Loan.
Keep in mind that the process may take from a week to ten days. Start your research early!
Many of our databases have an Interlibrary Loan Request button for articles not available in that particular database. Before submitting the loan request, be sure to check our Journals List for the title of the source or periodical (i.e. New York Times).
