Forced Migration Online (FMO) has started two sets of delicious bookmarks, one for new documents added to its digital library and the other for RSC working papers. As I've mentioned before, the handy thing about delicious is that it offers RSS feeds for tags created to describe one's bookmarks. So users can subscribe to feeds for both the aforementioned bookmark lists, here and here. Very handy for keeping up-to-date on FMO content.

The Peace Palace Library has expanded its offerings of RSS feeds:
- If you would like to be kept up to date about new additions to the library's collection, you can subscribe to keyword feeds (e.g., Refugees and displaced persons, Human trafficking, Humanitarian assistance, etc.). Any time a record for a new journal article, book chapter, report or book that includes one of your keywords is added to the catalogue, your feed will be updated.
- You can also subscribe to a journal feed to be alerted when a new issue of a journal is received by the library.
- If you prefer to be notified of new tables of contents for individual journals that you specify, you can do so from the journal TOC page.
- You can even conduct a search across journal articles and then create a custom RSS feed for those results. Choices include searching on the journal title, the article title or the author.
