How To Use Alerting Services

This guide highlights the different types of alerting services and provides links to aid in setting up alerts

Engineering Village 2 Information

The Engineering Village 2 platform provides access to the Compendex and INSPEC databases, along with information from the NTIS.

The platform provides Search Alert (in Email or RSS form) and Saved Search services.

Types of Alerts

Search Alert

A search alert allows you to save a custom search within a database. The search will run automatically whenever the database is updated or at the interval you specify, and you will receive notification of any new material that is found.

 Saved Search

Saved Searches are search queries and/or results saved by the database for future retrieval and re-searching.

NOTE: Links in some email alerts may not be fully compliant with the WSU proxy server, so you may need to retrieve the article directly by accessing the WSU licensed resource.
