Automating searches is an effective and time-efficient method for keeping up on the most current literature in your area of research. This guide provides instructions for automating searches across four different platforms: Google Scholar, EBSCO, ProQuest, and fUSIon.
In EBSCO databases (CINAHL, PsycINFO, Education H. W. Wilson, etc.), you will need to sign into your EBSCO account to save or automate searches.
*Note: EBSCO accounts are free of charge and can be linked to your Google Account. This enables the ability to save full text resources to your Google Drive.
Though ProQuest does not require that you create an account to automate searches via email or RSS feed, you will need a ProQuest account if you wish to modify, view, or delete your alerts. ProQuest accounts are free of charge.
Follow these steps to set up email notifications or RSS feeds in fUSIon to keep up on new library acquisitions and updated content in our subscription databases.
