Research center investigators wishing to retrieve the most up-to-date references available for a subject area on a regular basis can establish a current awareness profile:

  • Using subject information and keywords you provide, the librarian will send references to journal articles (and other materials if needed) from selected databases.
  • The searches are run on a monthly basis and sent electronically.
  • If the results you receive are irrelevant to the topic of interest, the librarian will work with you to find a solution.
  • You can cancel the service at any time.
  • Be aware that the profile need not match your current area(s) of research, but can include any subject(s) for which current literature is needed.

Please call, email or visit the library with questions. Download the request form.
