Finding resources

You need to try and automate as much of this as you can. Most journals will now allow you to set up an alert for an author or keywords of interest. Google alerts is also another option but you need to be careful in choosing the phrases you want alerts for. Google scholar is an important resource that you need to master. A lot of options for you to work into your repertoire. If you are lucky there may be people who maintain well curated information about your field in their blog. The other source of ideas for locating resources can be from the ways in which others locate their resources. All of our habits and routines in this respect can always be improved and "the digital" will continue to throw up new apps and ways of tackling this task.

And, if you come across folk who seem to be good at locating good resources, ask them how they work!
