When you create a search alert in EBSCO, you can also make it an RSS feed and add it to your blogreader. Just click the orange RSS button next to each alert to add it to your feeds.

To create a search alert, sign in to My EBSCOhost. Click the Advanced Search tab. Do a search. On the results screen, click the Search/History Alerts tab. Click the Save Searches/Alerts link. Fill in the name and description, then click the Save Search As Alert button. Under E-mail Options, click No e-mail (RSS only). You'll still be required to fill in your e-mail address. Click Save, then OK. To add the alert to your RSS reader or edit your alerts, click Retrieve Alerts.
