RSS Feeds Available Via Web of Science

Biotechnology and Scholarly Communications Librarian Katie Newman has informed me that one can get RSS feeds from Web of Science. These are the directions she sent me:

RSS Alerting - RSS feeds to receive search, citation, and tables of content alerts from ISI Web of Knowledge.

You will need to register in ISI Web of Knowledge the first time. After searching in Web of Science, you can save your searches. Use 'Search History' and then click on 'Save History' icon. You will need to fill up 'Save Search History' form with a name for your alert, a brief description, and an option to receive an email alert for your query. If you are only interested in receiving RSS feeds, do not mark 'Send Me Email Alerts' box.
Click on 'Save' and you will notice an 'XML' icon that provides the URL for the RSS feed for your query. The

XML' icon provides the URL that can be copied and pasted in your feed reader.

I'd be interested from any bellog reader who will be using RSS from WoS.
