Keeping up with the scholarly literature in your field is important. Even if your field is interdisciplinary, or massive in scope, here are a few strategies that can help:
Help documents from commonly-used databases for saving searches and setting up alerts:
BrowZine, an app for iPads and Android tablets, is available for use by University of Arizona faculty, staff and students. BrowZine lets you browse, read, and monitor many of our licensed scholarly journals on your tablet. Some of the publishers include American Chemical Society, Project MUSE, Oxford, SAGE, Springer, etc. It doesn't currently support each title we subscribe to, but it does cover the overwhelming majority of them.
If you are using a mobile device, the link above will first take you to a page where you can download and install the app. (App is available from the Apple App Store, Google Play or Amazon Appstore.)
After installing the app, open it, select University of Arizona from the list and enter your current NetID and password. It may take several minutes to build the library. Then select journals either by subject or title. Articles may be saved, emailed or sent to RefWorks, Mendeley or Zotero.
