Edinburgh, UK Share your resources with other academics if your repository generates RSS. The Gold Dust project is a JISC-funded project exploring time-saving solutions which may provide academics with intelligently selected current awareness information. This information is drawn from numerous RSS feeds of various sources and then selected against using intelligently generated Personal Information Profiles. Gold Dust is actively collecting RSS feeds for a number of categories of resources, and IRs/subject repositories are one of these categories.
The Gold Dust project currently has RSS feeds for new items in arXiv, The Depot, a handful of US repositories, and one UK repository: the Glasgow ePrints Service.
If you produce an RSS feed for your Institutional Repostiory, please contact Roddy MacLeod, Senior Subject Librarian, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh EH14 4AS, Tel (0131) 451 3576. Your new additions will then be harvested and then matched with the Personal Information Profiles of those participating in the Gold Dust project.
