LIBRARY EXPOSÉ! How to get notified when journals are published!

library EXPOSÉIn this week’s episode of LIBRARY EXPOSÉ!, we expose the easiest way that you can keep up-to-date with your favourite journal or magazine!  Getting set up to receive an email every time your favourite magazine is published is super easy and these days, it sure beats getting a magazine delivered to your mailbox with the threat of a postal strike looming!

2. Then, perform a search for the publication you’d like to be notified about.
