Setting up an RSS feed from the library databases

Setting up an RSS feed

Journal Notification/Table of Contents

All EBSCOhost databases and interfaces support RSS ("Really Simple Syndication") feeds for search alerts and journal alerts. RSS enabled alerts allow librarians and users to feed results from EBSCOhost search alerts and journal alerts into their RSS readers and aggregators, as well as their web sites.

You can use RSS to be notified when your EBSCO databases have been updated with results related to your search alert or journal alert.  In the E-mail Options section, select the No e-mail (RSS only) option. After you create the alert, a confirmation message will display on-screen. Be sure to copy the Alert Syndication Feed link (URL) into your newsreader.

See the example below on how to set up an RSS feed.
