The Library subscribes to the University of Washington's Current Index to Legal Periodicals (CILP), which delivers weekly e-mail notices containing topical access to the table of contents pages from over 570 legal publications. Faculty can also set up a SmartCILP profile and receive a weekly e-mail that focuses only on the subject headings and journals they select. To receive CILP notices or set up a SmartCILP profile, please contact Matt Steinke (471-6232, email@example.com).
The Library subscribes to the Legal Scholarship Network (LSN), a division of the Social Sciences Research Network (SSRN) that publishes a wide range of law-related working papers and article drafts accepted for publication. Faculty members may subscribe to any of the LSN journals. Access to the SSRN Economic Research Network and Financial Economics Network may also be available. Contact Matt Steinke (firstname.lastname@example.org, 471-6232).
The Library provides regular email updates during Supreme Court terms to UT law faculty.

You can use Lexis, Westlaw, and other electronic resources to create automatic notification systems that will inform you by email of new primary or secondary source materials that relate to particular subjects or that are published by particular sources.
