More on the ProQuest Feeds

In early May, I wrote about ProQuest's Curriculum Match Factor project, which John Law presented at a California Digital Library meeting. In the presentation he included screencaps of how libraries and faculty could use the feeds to generate "headlines" of the newest articles for one of about 70 topics--with links back to ABI Inform. He kindly sent me the screencaps to use in my presentation to the UCSD Library staff.

Those screencaps are now on the ProQuest site. I'm taking copies to SLA for when I meet with vendors. This is an excellent of what libraries and faculty could do with feeds, and what a marketing opportunity this is for the journal publishers and database providers.
