How to Create One-Step RSS Search Alerts
If you prefer to view your search alerts via an RSS reader, one-step alerts offer a quick and easy way to obtain the alert syndication feed, which you can then copy into your RSS reader.
Note: Be sure to add the feed to an aggregator within one week of its creation. A one-step alert will not expire unless the aggregator does not automatically update results (extremely unlikely) supplied by the feed for two months.
Your library administrator decides whether one-step alerting is available.
To set up a one-step RSS search alert:
From the Result List or Search History Screen, click the RSS alert icon, or the RSS Feed link on the Share drop-down menu.
A pop-up screen displays with the search alert information. Copy the RSS Feed URL into your newsreader.
Click the Save Alert button.
If you decide that e-mail delivery of the alert information is required, click the Sign in link. Once you sign in to My EBSCOhost, the Search Alert Screen appears. You can save the alert as described in Saving a Search as an Alert.
