Engineering Village

Engineering Village allows you to create up to 125 weekly Email Alerts from the Search History. A Personal Account is required to set up email alerts.

From the top of any Engineering Village page, click Search History. Select the box next to the search you wish to set up as an alert. If you are not already logged into your Personal Account, you will be prompted to do so. If you are not registered for a Personal Account, you will be asked if you want to register now. (See instructions for registering for a Personal Account).

You can also set up Email Alerts from the Saved Searches page if you are logged into your Personal Account.

Email alerts can also be setup by clicking the Create email link near each search statement in Easy, Quick, Expert or Thesaurus Search.

Up to 25 records are sent within an email alert. If more records were retrieved from the weekly update, a hyperlink appears in the body of the email alert linking you to Engineering Village. The full update retrieval set will appear when you click on the link. You can also link from email alerts to individual records by clicking an Abstract or Detailed Record hyperlink.


After you have received an alert...

Once you are 'alerted' to the existence of a journal issue or article, search the Journal Title Database to see if the journal issue is available online or physically in the library. For journal articles not owned locally or available electronically, submit a request through ILLiad.
