Current Awareness

Signing up for our Alerting Service means you no longer have to worry about keeping up to date with your favourite journals or be concerned about those important new developments that you may be missing out on.  We have a range of alerting services that will keep you well informed.



The Library subscribes to JournalTOCs, a service which provides access to the Table of Contents of over 28,000 journals. The journals cover a wide range of topics, including medicine, nursing and pharmacology.

At JournalTOCs, you can set up your own individual login, create your own lists of followed journals and receive alerts for articles, current awareness and searches.

If you wish to use this service, simply go to click on the sign in option and then register as a new user.

Please contact us for further information
