You can save your current search or any other search you have made during a session, and set an alert to advise you of updates via email or RSS.
When signed in
The 'Save search/Set an alert' link appears at the bottom of the left-hand side column of your search results (under the RSS icon).
Click the link and in the window that appears you can give your search a name, and choose to receive email alerts as well. This saved search will be available in 'My searches' whenever you sign in, unless you decide to delete it.
If you choose to set an email alert, your search will automatically run weekly and you will receive new results by email to the address you specify in 'My preferences'. You can rename your saved search, remove your email alert or subscribe to an RSS feed of updates to your search. You can also set up an RSS feed directly from the search results page.
- If you save your search as an RSS feed using a feed reader or browser, it will not appear under 'Saved searches and email alerts' in 'My searches'.
- If you click on 'Delete' both the saved search and the email alert will be removed from 'My searches'.
When not signed in
You can elect to receive updates of any search you perform when you're not signed in as an RSS feed. However, you can't set up email alerts.
Each search you perform as a guest will be listed in 'My searches', but these searches will only be saved for the single session.
To save a particular catalogue record (rather than a search) without signing in, you can print, email or share the record.
