Note: You do not need to create a GALE account in order to create search alerts and RSS feeds.


1. Enter your search terms, set limiters, and modify your search until you are happy with the results.

2. In the Tools box on the right hand side of the screen, click on Create Search Alert.

3. In the Search Alert box, fill out the email address where you would like to receive your alerts, decide how often you would like to receive them (Frequency), and what format you would like then click the Submit button.


If you would like to use a RSS Feed Reader, copy and paste the url for the RSS feed into your favorite Reader.

You will get a notification that your alert has been created successfully after you click Submit.
