Ebsco Embraces RSS

The Shifted Librarian reports that EBSCO has finally embraced RSS. To test it out, do a search in an EBSCO database, such as Academic Search Elite which is freely available to all Wisconsinites via Badgerlink.

On your search results page, notice the orange RSS button which appears at the top. Click on this will give you a customized RSS feed based on your search terms. It also gives you the option to receive an email alert.

I'm very pleased with this. EBSCO has made it easy and intuitive to generate a custom feed. Lets hope that more vendors follow suit.
