This report describes a prototype current-awareness service for faculty and staff at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. The service involved selective dissemination of information using 071-line bibliographic databases and the routing of table of contents from selected periodical holdings. The project resulted in delivery of more than 3,000 publications from references in thirty-eight databases and from the tables of contents of 154 periodical titles. Document evaluations and survey results show the patterns of use among faculty, the types of documents selected, the pattern of delivery, and the effectiveness of databases and tables of contents in providing current awareness.
