Proquest Will Offer RSS Feeds Soon...

I posted a little ago how Ingenta now provides RSS feeds and therefore you can pick up the table of contents, for free, of many scholarly GIS publications via RSS.

Well, The Shifted Librarian just announced that ProQuest is also set to release RSS feeds, but most likely only for customers. ProQuest databases include journal and newspaper holdings which may be covered by Ingenta, but also include the ProQuest Digital Dissertations database. This means that as soon as a student's dissertation concerning GIS is made available, we can immediately be alerted via RSS. I would like to see this happen.
