Table of Contents Notifications

For some reason, I've been slow to jump on the bandwagon with electronic alerts from journals. They're a handy way to know when a new issue is out and what's in it. Many even offer RSS feeds, for those who use this great timesaving tool for internet reading.

Hearing my plight, my friend Diana King, arts librarian at UCLA, sent me this handy list of e-notification services to get me started. She said I could share this with others, so I am.
