Current Awareness Services
The Library provides access to three electronic resources to help keep you informed about the latest journal articles published in your areas of interest: Ingenta Reveal, SmartCILP, and the Table of Contents Service for English language foreign and international periodicals from the University of Texas School of Law Library. These services all deliver regular email updates to each subscriber, so the information automatically appears in your email box.
Ingenta contains current journal article citations from more than 18,000 multi-disciplinary, English-language journals published since 1988. There are about 1000 law-related journals. Ingenta has keyword, author, and journal name indexes, and allows browsing of the journal tables of contents.
The University of Connecticut has a site license for Ingenta Reveal that enables University of Connecticut faculty, staff and students to set up personal profiles at no charge and receive regular e-mail with the material selected in the profile. Up to 50 journal tables of contents and up to 25 keyword searches may be specified for each profile. The tables of contents and search results you choose will be delivered to your e-mail box every Monday. To set up a profile please contact the Reference Desk at 860-570-5068 or email facserv.
The printed Current Index to Legal Periodicals (CILP) has been prepared at the University of Washington Law Library on a weekly basis since 1948. Through a list of 100 subject headings, CILP provides timely topical access to approximately 475 university legal publications and other law journals. SmartCILP is a fee-based service that provides automated personalized e-mail delivery of CILP. After setting up a SmartCILP profile, subscribers receive an e-mail message every Wednesday that focuses only on the subject headings and journals selected. To set up a profile or a subscription contact the Reference Desk at 860-570-5068 or email facserv.
University of Texas Law Library Foreign and International Tables of Contents Service
This service from the University of Texas Law Library e-mails the table of contents from over 200 law reviews and other scholarly journals published outside the United States in the English language. The Tables of Contents Service generates between 2 and 4 messages per week, and the messages will be sent to your email box directly if you have a subscription. There is a three-month, keyword-searchable archive of the list postings, and also a list of journals included in the service. Subscription to the service is open to anyone with ".edu" in their e-mail address. To set up a subscription please contact the Reference Desk at 860-570-5068 or email facserv.
Our library collection will have many of the articles listed in these electronic current awareness service products. If your research assistant is not available to obtain the article for you, please contact the Reference Desk at 860-570-5068 or email facserv. If we do not own the journal, we will attempt to obtain a copy through our Interlibrary Loan service.
