Making the Magic Really Happen: Real Tools and Real Applications for Really Simple Syndication (RSS)

Libraries have long prided ourselves on being able to deliver valuable content to our patrons, but what do we do when our patrons can’t or won’t come to us? Like always, we go to them! Presentation attendees will gain a solid understanding of RSS technology, the real workhorse behind a host of 2.0 tools, and will learn how they can take excellent content from the RSS-enabled sources they curate, and those they create, and pipe it directly into the webspaces that our patrons inhabit. We’ll look at ways we can use assorted “feed remixers” to grab information from our databases, instructional blogs, podcasts, and more, and deliver that content to other websites – including course management systems!
