Keeping up to date in your topic area: Home


During your time as a student, you may find it extremely useful to keep up-to-date with the latest developments, literature and events in your subject area. Such activities will enable you to include the latest ideas and findings in your dissertation, reports and presentations. Today, there is a very wide range of web-based and social media facilities available to choose from to aid you in this task.

This guide will explore these facilities and will include information about: 

  • browsing the new book lists on the Library catalogue
  • browsing tables of contents of relevant journals
  • searching relevant subject databases regularly
  • setting up email alerts from databases and publishers' websites
