Once added to the platform, Sources coming from public websites are included among those available to all clients. A Client Administrator can explore these Sources using the search bar at the top of the page or by utilizing the filters to the left.
Sources of interest which are not already on the platform can easily be added by Client Administrators using the steps below. Virtually any RSS feed or structured web page which has updating, unique links can be set up in the platform. There is no prohibition on language, jurisdiction or publishers.

Adding a URL to Vable
Once you have found the best URL, navigate to the Vable Sources page. On the left-hand side, select Add An Article Source and then select Add a URL as a Source.
Within the dialog box, paste the URL for the web page or RSS feed and click Validate.
Review the auto-populated Source title. Note: You can edit the title field, and add a description if you wish. Any changes to the title or description will only be visible for your organization.
If the Source is behind a login, for example subscription materials, select the checkbox for “This source is only available for my organization”. This will ensure the Source stays private to your organization. Note: Each new Source is reviewed by the Vable content team to ensure that it is given the proper privacy settings.
If the Source includes content that should not be made widely available within your platform, such as those with a limited license or which include sensitive information, select the checkbox for “This source is restricted” and enter a brief description of the usage terms. Read more about utilizing license restrictions.
All Sources you add to the platform are preselected to be included in your organization’s Account Library as seen in this step.
If required, the Source can be added to one or more Custom Search Filters, though we strongly recommend making all edits from within the Search Filter itself to prevent conflicts within the data. Read more about Custom Search Filters.
If your organization’s platform includes the option for a private taxonomy, this step will appear. Assign existing Taxonomy terms to the Source by selecting the required checkbox(es). Read more about Creating and Managing a Private Taxonomy.
Click Add. This will add the Source and redirect you to the Source’s detail page.
OR Click Add & Create New. This will add the Source and take you back to Step 1, enabling you to easily add multiple Sources in bulk.
Your Source will now appear on the Sources page and will usually begin populating with content within one business day for a web page or within a few minutes for a RSS feed.
