Once you have logged in, you can create several kinds of alerts. Table of contents alerts will send an email when a new journal or magazine issue in your area of interest has been posted online. Simply check one or more journals from the list and Submit Selection. Conference alerts will send a summary of new conferences added on a weekly basis. Standard by industry and standard by version alerts will send an email when a new standard in your area of interest has been posted online.
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.
