Topic Alerts

Job seekers need to have up-to-date information about their field. An excellent tool to stay on top of developments is to set up a search alert in the EBSCO databases. You will be notified by email on the schedule of your choice (daily, weekly, monthly) when articles or books are published on topics of interest to you. From your search results page, click CREATE ALERT and follow the instructions. If you don't already have an EBSCO account, create a new one (free). Please note that this service is tied to your Ivy Tech account and will only work while you are enrolled or employed here.
