How to subscribe new arrivals alerts in koha

Koha users can set the new arrival alert using the RSS Feed subscription. Users must have an account with the RSS aggregator and need to add an RSS feed subscription to the RSS feeds. Once the search RSS feed is added to the RSS Feed Readers, patrons will start to get a notification when a new title is added to the catalog and will match your search.

Copy the RSS feed of your search results

Suppose your specialization is psychology and you would like to be notified when the library catalog any book related to psychology subject.

Open the Koha OPAC and search for the subject keyword of psychology in the catalog
