Activating RSS Feeds
Syndicated content, otherwise known as Really Simple Syndication (RSS), is a popular way to distribute information from Web sites. For example, using RSS, a news site or a blog can automatically feed its news articles or entries to a group of subscribers.
RSS feeds in Primo are used to notify you of new or updated items found by the query. RSS feeds can be activated from either the search results or the Saved Queries & Alerts folder on the My Queries tab. All that you need is to have an RSS reader installed on your computer.
If your browser supports RSS, click the rss link, which appears either above or below the facets. A window from which you can subscribe to the RSS feeds opens. Follow the instructions in the window.
If your browser does not support RSS, click the rss link, copy the URL, and paste it into the RSS reader.
Because records returned from EBSCO and WorldCat deep searches do not have a unique ID, you will not be able to view the details for these records in RSS feeds.
