Getting Started with Omni

How do I create alerts within Omni?

When you have a focused search that retrieves highly relevant hits, set up an alert to run the search automatically and then email you relevant results.

To turn on an alert:

  1. Sign in to your account in Omni.
  2. Click "Save query" when you are satisfied with your search terms.
  3. A yellow banner will appear at the top of the window. Click "Turn on notification for this query".
  4. You will be prompted to enter your email address.
  5. To manage your search queries go to "My Favourites" and then "Saved Searches". You can turn notifications on or off at any time.

Once an alert is set up, you will receive weekly emails containing all of the new resources generated from your search alert. The first ten titles are listed as direct links.
