What is Z-Alerts?

Z-Alerts help you learn about the arrival of new books according to your search query.

With Z-Alerts is possible:

  • to track a book from the category “Coming soon” that hasn’t downloaded to our library yet. Then you need to create Z-Alert with a query for book’s title.
  • to track a book that we don’t have. Create Z-Alert with the book’s title.
  • to track the arrival of new books by a particular author. Just create Z-Alert with the name of the author. For better results, we recommend to use not a full name but only a last name (for example, instead of P. Watson only Watson).
  • to track books on a specific topic (for example, you work as a web designer and you need books only from the Graphic Design category). So create Z-Alert with the category name “Graphic design”.

How does it work?

You create a search query (this can be a book title, author name, category name or ISBN). Then our system will daily check our library collection for the books that match your request. When such books are found, you will receive an e-mail with links to these books.
