  • Best to use the SFX link when you have a title with coverage in several databasesIf we have turned on GLRI databases in SFX, these will come up in a Journals A-Z search
  • Can use the link from the database when you have coverage in only one database or two databases with the same coverage because the link from the publication record requires fewer clicks for the user
  • Freebie tip: You can create an alert to receive notifications when a new issue of a magazines or journal is added to a database. You can do this in EBSCO and in ProQuest.
  • Freebie Tip: you can also set up a search alert to receive notifications when a new article matching your search is added.This feature works the same if you are in an EBSCO database.
