Research Impact

Research impact is incredibly important for determining the reach of scholarly literature. Below are some resources that explain impact in more detail.

Managing Your Research and References

These are managers that are useful for keeping track of references.

Current Awareness

Keeping current with scholarly literature in your field can certainly be difficult in a world of information overload. However, there are ways to help you stay on top of the literature in your discipline or of a particular research interest. 

Many of the library databases offer alert services. One of the easiest and most convenient ways is to sign up for email alerts, which will automatically alert you about new articles that meet your search criteria. 

For email alerts: 

1. Go to the Databases tab on the library homepage:

2. Select All Subjects and then click Go

3. Pick a database, for example, EBSCO Multi-Search

4. Type in your search

5. Click on the Alert/Save/Share link. Note: You have to sign in before you can get email alerts. (My EBSCO)

You will get a notification email to activate your alert request. This is to confirm your email address. Setting an email alert can be done with other library databases as well.
