- Go to the database, in this example, we have used ERIC on the EBSCO platform
NB! inter*war AND England AND teach* (the asterisks are used so that both 'interwar' and 'inter-war' can be found; AND is a Boolean operator that combines search terms)
- The EBSCO platform lists your searches below the search box. You can set up the alert by clicking on the orange RSS icon.
- Next, a pop-up window which gives you the option to set up an email alert or an RSS alert will appear:
- Copy the URL under the orange RSS icon which in this example is: http://rss.ebscohost.com/AlertSyndicationService/Syndication.asmx/GetFeed?guid=55955
- Open up your RSS reader and subscribe to this feed by pasting the URL in the relevant area of the reader. Information about feed readers is in the IOE LibGuide on RSS. The example below uses 'The Old Reader' but there are feed readers on Outlook, on your browser and on Zotero.
- The next time the database adds an article or a resource that matches the search terms you used to create the RSS feed, you will see this appear in the Reader. This is a good way to keep updated on new research in your area.
