Transcript

  • 1. FACULTY RSS SERVICE The latest information delivered to your inbox Andrea D. Reed, Media & Digital Librarian Warner Memorial Library, Eastern University
  • 2. What it offers… • Saves time • Delivers the latest research on a topic • Manages your popular searches • Simplifies your sources for information
  • 3. What is an RSS feed? • An RSS feed is – an XML file that – “disseminates real-time information – via a subscription on the Internet” (Webster’s New Millennium Dictionary of English) • In other words… – every time site content is updated, you get a notification.
  • 4. How the service works • First we take your – frequently read (electronic) journals and – commonly searched for topics • Then we combined them into two RSS feeds • Finally, we subscribe you to these feeds using an email address of your choice (eastern.edu, hotmail.com, yahoo.com, gmail.com, etc.)
  • 5. What to expect • Shortly after you are subscribed to the feeds, you will begin receiving emails anytime new information is posted to your selected electronic journal(s), and/or search(es) – For example, when a new issue or new article becomes available • The email will contain ONLY hyperlinks to this updated content, not the articles – Does not take up space in your email account
  • 6. Examples Search alerts created in the following databases: •EbscoHost, WilsonWeb, ProQuest, etc. E-journals: New Media & Society Milton Quarterly Annals of Applied Biology Brooklyn Journal of International Law Ethnic and Racial Studies Journal of Early Christian Studies Psychology and aging etc.
