EBSCO now offering RSS feeds  
RSS feeds will now be available in EBSCOhost. This is a very welcome move. EBSCO has long offered journal contents pages and keyword searches by email, which I've made extensive use of in the past. But the advantage of RSS, of course, is that I can access the search results from any computer (via Bloglines) and incorporate the RSS feeds into a web page so that clients have direct access to the search results.

This is especially significant in New Zealand because of the EPIC consortium, which gives pretty much anyone in NZ access to EBSCO databases through their public library. [edit: via LibraryStuff].
