Jenny Levine from The Shifted Librarian blog is posting about a new feature in EBSCO database.
"EBSCO has changed the way it offers RSS feeds and they've done a great job", writes Jenny.
For every search at EBSCO now, you are given the option to subscribe to your own search via RSS feed and automatically receive alerts.
I did a search in EBSCO about "emerging technologies" and was able to create an RSS alert with daily article updates for my search.
To start receiving articles in your reader, you need to access the newly created RSS feed within seven days otherwise EBSCO will automatically remove it. If for some reason, your feed is inactive for more than two months, it will be deleted.
Another cool feature in EBSCO is the ability to display a link for searches. This is especially useful when librarians provide virtual reference and need to link online a database search .
