  • 2. What are Feeds?
    • RSS (feed) is a tool to save you time having to visit websites to see if they’ve been updated
    • It’s important because journals and databases create feeds so we can use it to keep u-to-date easily
    • How can I tell of a site has a feed:
    • All you need to read a feed is provided by NLH (but there are other services like google reader out there too!)
    • The important bit of the feed is its web address
  • 3. Go to the NLH Homepage and log in with your NHS Athens username.
  • 4.
    • There are over 1000 online journals available to NHS staff which have been purchased by NHS England. Local health library services have added to this total. This includes many top titles such as JAMA and British Medical Journal.
    • Your NHS Athens username and password is the key to accessing these journals and articles.
    • Direct access to a searchable index is available via My Journals, or from the link on the NLH homepage
  • 5. Once you have logged on with your Athens username, select My Library. This will always appear on the top tool bar of NLH.
  • 6. MY UPDATE Click on add feed to create a new item in MY UPDATE Latest 4 items of feed with time updated. Click on list all to see all available feed items.
  • 7. Adding a Feed
    • First find your feed (in this case I’ve used Ebsco CINAHL Full Text).
    • Click on the RSS feed icon and copy the feeds address in this case Pediatric Nursing into the Feed URL box and give the feed a name
    • http:// rss . ebscohost .com/ AlertSyndicationService /Syndication. asmx / GetFeed ? guid =1379494
