AIP Conference Proceedings Alert Service

.: George Porter sent a note about a new alert service from the American Institute of Physics, called New Volume Alerts:

Librarians are invited to register for alerts of newly-published volumes in the AIP Conference Proceedings series. This free service is meant to provide librarians with bibliographic data to facilitate inclusion of each new volume in online catalogs or other indexing services.

Each e-mail alert will include bibliographic data for the title, as well as a complete table of contents. Alerts are available in either plain-text (ASCII) or HTML format. Alerts are delivered directly to the e-mail address you specify; alerts in HTML format are fully linked to abstracts and full text. Please note that the e-mail address you enter will not be sold or otherwise distributed to any other individual or entity.

As George notes in his e-mail, "It will beat the heck out of trying to remember to go scope out the site every week or so to forward info to Cataloging.
" :-)
