Week 3: RSS and the Last Crusade

Really Simple Syndication or RSS seems to be an up and coming Web 2.0 trend. The video really showed how more efficient RSS can make our daily website or blog hopping. If you follow a blog that doesn't update frequently, it would be really nice to know when changes are made. Also, having everything come to one "reader" instead of looking over multiple sites for new info can save time.

Even Indiana Jones would be impressed with my new Google Reader which allows School Library Journal and my daily Unshelved fix to come right to me. I am looking forward to exploring Feedity to see what it has to offer.

I would love it if our Library had an RSS, I think that would benefit and draw in the "younger" (16-29) crowd. Having one for our Staff Training would benefit me.

  1. Wow, that's a great idea about a staff training RSS. I'll make sure it gets passed along.

    Since you're an aspiring librarian, I highly recommend the Library Journal RSS feed for quick libraryland updates.

    I'm glad you're participating! :)
