Current Awareness - Tracking journals and topics

Table of Contents Services:

Most of the library's full text journal platforms (publisher sites and aggregators) offer a "table of contents alert" service to send you an email with their own latest table of contents. Ask library staff for assistance.

JournalTOCs - free service providing table of contents email alerts for over 24,000 journals including all of the major academic journal publishers.

EBSCOHost, PubMed, and Proquest allow you to set up search strategies as alerts, to email you when new articles arrive in their databases matching your search.
All three also allow you to create Journal TOC alerts, although publisher sites are usually better for those. Ask library staff for assistance.

Amazon.com provides links to book reviews from such sources as New York Review of Books and New York Times Book Review.

Academia Book Releases - a monthly online magazine of academic titles and information - from Baker & Taylor.
