Saving and Managing Search Queries in Primo VE (Ex Libris Knowledge Center)

 

Setting an alert or creating an RSS feed all begins with saving a search

Setting an Alert

When saving a search, you'll have the option to set an alert

 

If you didn't create an alert when saving a search:

  1. Click the My Favorites button at the top of the page.
  2. Select the Saved Searches tab to display all of your saved searches.
  3. Click the Set Alert button    that appears next to the query to set the alert.

* Setting alerts are not an option for searches run in an EBSCO scope.

To cancel an alert, click the Cancel Alert button    that appears next to the query

 

Creating a RSS feed (Ex Libris Knowledge Center)

  1. Click the My Favorites button at the top of the page.
  2. Select the Saved Searches tab to display all of your saved searches.
  3. Click the RSS button RSS_Icon.png for the saved search that you want to monitor.
  4. Subscribe to the feed if your browser has an RSS reader.

* Because records returned from EBSCO searches do not have a unique ID, you will not be able to view the details for these records in RSS feeds.
