RSS feeds

This a very useful feature of our online databases that I wasn't aware of (not being on the desk these days I have really not used these databases much at all). It was pretty easy to set up an account on AccessScience and also to set up RSS feeds through Proquest. It is probably a good idea to try different search strategies and refine or expand a search as required if you aren't getting the results you want. I didn't have a lot of results coming through from Proquest, but enough to enable me to see how it worked and how the RSS feeds can be used to enhance the use of this, and other databases.
