Standing Library Queries and RSS Alerts

The ability to specify library holdings as one more resource to be indexed in search collections (see The New Face of Enterprise Search to know more about search collections), when combined with standing searches generating RSS feeds; provide Library users with a niftyfeature: implicit notification when a new item fulfilling the search criteria is entered into the Library catalogue! More about this in the New Item Alerts via RSS post, from the LibrarianInBlack Blog.
