Encountering an error? It may be due to one of the following:

  1. Your email address does not match the domain of the subscribing account. To successfully create a new IFLP Alert account, you must use your institutional email address. (Email addresses ending in yahoo.comaol.com, or gmail.com, for instance, will not work).
  2. You have already created an IFLP Alert account with the email address in question. If this is the case, you will be unable to create a duplicate. Learn how to edit an existing account.
