To create alerts, you will first need to create an individual account. Use the Register Individual button. You will not have any tokens to enter.
To create a Table of Contents alert, use the search or browse function to find a journal of interest. Click through the title link to view the journal's homepage. At the top right of the journal's homepage, look for the Register for TOC Alerting link. Click through this link and look for the Table of Contents Alert for this Journal box on the right side of the page. Enter your email address twice to create the alert. You can also subscribe to an RSS feed for this search.
You can encounter two issues in received alerts:
Now that VPN access to library resources has ended, the only way to access these outside the campus network is through Off Campus Sign In. Typically the links provided in alerts do not go through this proxy, but you can fix these links. Install the LibX browser extension, then either right-click the link in your browser and choose to follow the link via Off Campus Sign In, or go to the link, then right-click the page and reload it through Off Campus Sign In.
You may be alerted to a new publication through a publisher's site, but we have access through a different source. If you cannot access the item even using Off Campus Sign In, search the Journal Title Database to see if the journal issue is available through a different provider. For journal articles not available locally, submit a request through ILLiad.
