ticTOCS take the pain out of RSS

An article in the recent SCONUL Newsletter drew my attention to the JISC ticTOCs project. This uses a single entry point where academics can apply for RSS feeds to their chosen journal TOCS (table of contents)from a variety of publishers, negating the need to make applications to individual publishers. Inspired by an idea from Roddy MacLeod of Heriot-Watt University, it is really useful for serious researchers, and a great use of Web 2.0 technology. Prototype site now available for use.

Thanks for mentioning ticTOCs, Peter. The next release of ticTOCs will be a usable service, as there will be better search, subject search, more content and constantly updated content.
