Transcript

  • 1. Use RSS Feeds to import data into RefWorks
    Really simple syndication (RSS) is an XML format used to publish frequently updated digital content.
    RefWorks has a built in RSS feed reader that allows you to add any feed you want.
    The feed reader allows you to store multiple feeds and run these feeds at your convenience.
  • 2. Use RSS Feeds to import data into RefWorks
    The RSS feed section is located in the Search area
  • 3. Use RSS Feeds to import data into RefWorks
    Some feeds have already been added to this account.
    Let’s add some more to see how this works.
  • 4. Use RSS Feeds to import data into RefWorks
    Locate the feed that you want to add. For example, we are on the feed page of nature.com
    http://www.nature.com/webfeeds/index.html
    Feeds are generally either a link or an orange box that says RSS or XML.
    At this site the feeds are links, so we will need to copy the link we want.
  • 5. Use RSS Feeds to import data into RefWorks
    Right mouse click the feed link to copy.
    Select ‘Copy Shortcut’
    Go back to your RefWorks account.
  • 6. Use RSS Feeds to import data into RefWorks
    Right mouse click and paste the feed link into the ‘RSS Feed URL’ box.
    Then click the ‘Add RSS Feed’ button.
    You will be asked if you want to retrieve the RSS feed. Click OK.
  • 7. Use RSS Feeds to import data into RefWorks
    The feed opens in a new window and you can import any of the records just like you would in an ‘Online Catalog or Database’ search within RefWorks.
    Select the records you want to import and either click the ‘Import’ button or the ‘Importto Folder’ drop-down.
    You will be asked if you want to import the selected reference(s). Click OK.
  • 8. Use RSS Feeds to import data into RefWorks
    Click on ‘View Last Imported Folder’
  • 9. Custom RSS Feeds
    Some data vendors even offer you the ability to make custom RSS feeds from search strategies. NLM PubMed is one that offers this feature.
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?holding=izauctlib
    The data vendors who offer this custom feed option my not follow the same steps that are demonstrated here. This is just to give you an idea of how the custom feed works.
  • 10. Custom RSS Feeds
    Type in your search strategy and click ‘Search’.
    The results of the search are displayed.
    One of the options available in the toolbar is RSS.
    Click the RSS hyperlink.
