New Materials Service

Baylor University Libraries offer an updated service listing new materials added to the library collections. Lists are updated weekly and sorted by disciplines for easy browsing.

From the libraries’ new materials web page, www.baylor.edu/lib/resourcemgmt/newmaterials, click the discipline area of your choice and then on a desired title to link to the online catalog, which will show information on location and call number.

Clicking on the RSS (Really Simple Syndication) Feed provides URLs for the disciplines so users can place them in their readers (aggregators) to subscribe to the new materials’ lists and automatically pick up any new items in that feed.

Numerous websites offer “free” aggregators that can be installed as well as web-based readers for use with any computer and browser. One of the websites with several types of aggregators is www.hebig.org/blogs/archives/main/000877.php. For more information on RSS, visit: www.webreference.com/authoring/languages/xml/rss.
