Abstract

Systems for curating and delivering current awareness have come a long way with the advent of social media. Whilst RSS and more traditional methods of searching still have their place, curation platforms that use the "wisdom of the crowd" are a valuable addition in extracting and aggregating fresh information whatever the topic.
