Elsevier Offers Personalized RSS Feeds

Jul 22, 2005

Elsevier Engineering Information has announced that Engineering Village 2, a Web discovery platform for engineering research, is now offering custom RSS feeds for users seeking premium engineering content. It enables users to build their own search criteria based upon their specific areas of interest and create personalized RSS feeds in accordance with their own information needs. Subscribers are now able to define their own searches against comprehensive engineering databases including Compendex and Inspec, and receive results delivered directly via RSS. Recognizing the potential of Web logs or blogs in the research process, Engineering Village 2 is also offering a new "Blog this" feature supporting researchers in posting references to Engineering Village 2 documents to their personal blogs. Once researchers identify article references of interest, Engineering Village 2 will automatically generate HTML code to be pasted into a blog and contains a direct link to the referenced document. "Blog this" was created to support the growing number of engineering researchers using blogs as Web based communication tools.
