Savvy Researcher Workshops - University Library

Doing research for your literature review is hard enough without having to remember where and how you located everything. If you set up search alerts to keep track of the essential information and journals in your field, you can have all that information sent directly to your feed reader account. We'll help you set up an account and add RSS feeds during this hands-on session.

  • How to set up an RSS feed reader account (we'll demonstrate Google Reader)
  • Create search alerts from library databases
  • Set up Table of Contents (TOC) Alerts for your favorite journal titles
