Zetoc Alert Now Available

16 Oct 2000

Following the launch this September of Zetoc, which provides Z39.50-compliant access to the British Library's Electronic Table of Contents database, MIMAS is pleased to announce that the Zetoc Alerting service is now available.

Zetoc Alert is a Table of Contents alerting service which will email you the contents pages of your chosen journals every time a new issue is loaded into the database (the database is updated daily so this can be as soon as 72 hours after publication).

Access to Zetoc Alert is controlled by Athens username (either access or personal accounts) and provided via the Web interface at http://zetoc.mimas.ac.uk/zetoc/bin/loginpage

Instructions on how to set up a Zetoc Alert are available at http://zetoc.mimas.ac.uk/alertguide.html

Zetoc and Zetoc Alert are available free of charge to JISC-sponsored UK further and higher education institutions. Research Councils, Irish sites and other higher and further education institutions may be able to access the service upon payment of an annual fee. Further details are available from the Zetoc helpdesk, zetoc@mimas.ac.uk.
