Re: Use of RSS in Bibliographic/Abstract Databases? Gerry Mckiernan 11 Jun 2004 19:48 UTC


In response  to my query posted earlier this week, I have learned of
two databases
that offer RSS functionality

HubMed: pubmed rewired: An Alternative Interface to the PubMed Medical
Literature Database
[  ]

[ ]

[Thanks to Teri Vogel/ Georgia State University Libraries for these two

  In addition, I has prompted to recall that an associated database of
my. PubMed offered by
FS Consulting, Inc. ( ), also provides
RSS functionality. The database, my.OAI [ ], is a
Open Archives Initiative Service Provider [ ]

Each of these are now listed in RSS(sm) [ ]

_Use of RSS in Bibliographic/Abstract Databases_?

I am greatly interested in learning of ANY and ALL
bibliographic/abstract databases that offer RSS feeds. Such feeds might
offer current search results, or automatic updates for a saved search
strategy. I would be interested in any current operational systems,
working prototypes, or projects under consideration.

For examples of other library-related uses of RSS, please see my latest
registry_RSS(sm): Rich Site Services_

BTW: Thanks to all for their nominations for _RSS(sm)_. Although still
quite limited, it has nearly doubled in size from its establishment on
Sunday, June 6 !
