External Content Feeds

Google maps, social media, and PubMed listing feeds are among the Tridion components that can make your site more engaging and interactive for visitors.

  • Given YSM's guidelines regarding interactions with patients, there are limited options for adding social media "features" to your site. In addition to a Twitter feed, the Office of Communications can add linked buttons to your site that direct users to your social media sites.
  • Some organizations and labs will want to list recent publications. SDL has a PubMed component that automatically updates publications onto your page by pulling in information from PubMed. Using the PubMed component eliminates the hassle of having to continuously update your publications page and writing citations.
  • The school has built an integration with the National Cancer Institute's PDQ database, a comprehensive database with summaries of thousands of cancer topics. Data files from NCI's database are downloaded and deployed to the School of Medicine's servers on a nightly basis, ensuring its websites have the most up-to-date NCI content.
