  • literature update service

    Biomch-L subscribers,

    Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland provides a free literature update
    service. This "pubcrawler" can be set up to search the Pubmed databases
    for you, daily or weekly, and will alert you to new publications
    in your area of interest.

    The service is available at and was described
    in the latest issue of Science magazine.

    As is to be expected with automated searches, the signal-to-noise
    ratio of the results will depend on a good choice of key words.

    Such a service may be a useful complement to Biomch-L's own
    "pubcrawler", Rodger Kram, who posts literature updates to this
    list which are broader but more carefully selected and commented.

    If anyone knows of a similar free service providing access to
    the engineering literature, please let me know or post to Biomch-L.
