Using Built-In Database Tools

Using database tools like Alerts will save you time and ensure that you don't miss any important updates made to your favorite information sources. You can use them to keep up with:     

  • Long Term Research Projects (eg: Theses or Dissertations)    
  • Research developments in your field    
  • Table of contents from new issues of journals    
  • New articles on a specific topic

Saved search urls can also help you keep track of your searching.

Some databases, when you're logged in, will track your search history.


Set up Browzine for your own research interest or discipline.
