This paper proposed a new web system-MJFB for SDI service between electronic journal databases and patrons which used RSS technology as an information dissemination pushing approach. MJFB system adopts the concepts of "MyLibrary" and "Personalization" to be developed, and patrons can precisely subscribe their own electronic journals and articles based on backgrounds and features. Lastly, MJFB system filters articles searched by keywords to eliminate unnecessary information. Also, those subscribed new information can be viewed on the same web page as MJFB system without using other application. The result of this research shows that RSS as an information delivering tool can avoid those problems occurring in e-mail. Meanwhile, using the flexibility of XML and OPML file can subscribe and browse new information much more conveniently and conforms to personal needs. In conclusion, MJFB can be a new aspect of SDI in digital library.
