Yes!  We have access to three great tools.

This customized version of CILP provides weekly e-mail delivery of portions of CILP focusing on the subjects and journals you select; it also includes full tables of contents for the journals you select.  To sign up for SmartCILP and set up your user profile:

You may change your profile at any time on the web by filling out the web form again.
