RSS Feeds from EBSCO Searches

By , September 11, 2007 6:03 pm

EBSCO databases have long used “alerts” to help you keep track of new materials that interest you. Now they’ve begun delivering those alerts via RSS feeds.

Users can now create an Alert directly
from the Result List, Search History, or the Publication list. Create
instant RSS feed Alerts by clicking on the orange RSS Feed icons.

What does this mean? It means you can create a search in any EBSCO database, grab the resulting RSS feed, and get information sent to you about new materials that have been added to that database that fit your search criteria. And without having to re-do your search every time.

(If you need an RSS reader, we recommend Google Reader or Bloglines.)

Butler Libraries currently subscribe to over 35 different EBSCO databases, including Academic Search Premier, Business Source Complete, ERIC, MasterFILE Premier, MEDLINE, Newspaper Source, PsycARTICLES, and SocINDEX with Full Text.
