Search alerts / automated queries

Oria and most of the USN library databases provide a notification service to registered users. Through this service you can save your database queries and receive search alerts by e-mail whenever new material is registered.

How can you stay up to date on current literature in your field? Want to make sure that you are informed about the latest scholarly articles relevant to your work? Then search alerts can be useful. You will receive e-mail notifications weekly or monthly with information about the latest literature.
