When you create a STAT!Ref account, you can save searches as well as sign up for evidence alerts. These will inform you when new information on your specified topic is posted. Also, with your STAT!Ref account, you can use STAT!Ref off-campus without logging in to the proxy server AND you can use STAT!Ref® Mobile Access for iOS, Android, and Blackberry! You must create the account while on campus or logged into the proxy server.
