Email Delivery for BNA Updates

If you’re monitoring a topic for a seminar paper or some other interest, Bloomberg BNA updates are one of the best available tools for law-related current awareness.

It has long been possible to sign up for email delivery of these updates, whether you’re following a weekly update (like U.S. Law Week) or a daily one (such as the Daily Labor Report). You can go to BNA’s Law School Professional Information Center and click “Sign Up for Email Updates.” After a brief registration process, you can select the titles you want to receive.

But it is much easier to manage your BNA email subscriptions with your Bloomberg Law account. During a Bloomberg Law session, click “BNA Law Reports” on the main page.

 BLaw-Law Reports      BLaw-Manage

 

From there, you can browse titles or topics to select the updates that interest you. To subscribe, just click the MANAGE EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS button; then, click the blue “Set Notification” button next to that title. (To unsubscribe, click the red “X” next to the title in the “Current Notifications” column on the right side of the screen.)

 

BLaw-Set Notifications2

 

There are many other legal news updates available to BU Law users, including Law360 and the “News Trackers” available through the IntelliConnect (formerly CCH) database. And you can create customized Alerts on Lexis, Westlaw or Bloomberg Law. (Check this space for a future post for more details.)

For more information about your particular needs, contact a reference librarian.
