A journal alert automatically notifies you when new content from a journal is available.
Instead of going out to MSU databases or free Web sites to search for content, you can select to have new content delivered to you. To do this you need to set up a place to store your content.
MSU Libraries Database or Index:
Pros: You may be able to get full-text of the journal content automatically delivered.
Cons: There may be a time-lag getting content delivered
Journal Publisher's Website: Another option is to use a search engine to find the publisher's Website. Look for a link such as 'Alert services'
Pros: The content may be delivered faster.
Cons: You may not be able to view full-text of the content as it does not link to MSU's subscriptions.
