Database Alerts

An alert is a service that emails subscribers updates to a database. Alerts are an efficient way to find out about new research, articles, or publications in your field or area of interest.

What you can do with a database alert:

  • Track a favorite periodical
  • Receive updated industry news
  • Track a company or executive
  • Receive targeted alerts for the duration of your field study project or class

Access Restrictions:

Most databases are covered by licenses limiting access to academic use by current UCLA students, faculty and staff, with some limited to UCLA Anderson use only.
