This Just In: Web Feeds for Enhanced Library Services

Gerry McKiernan, “This Just In: Web Feeds for Enhanced Library Services,” Knowledge Quest 33, no. 3 (January/February 2005): 38-41.

As observed by Roddy MacLeod, senior subject librarian at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland, “there are several practical ways in which the LIS community can both exploit the content of RSS, and improve their services through the presentation and re-presentation of RSS feeds. These do not amount to a revolution, but rather represent a step on the path to better information services, and one which takes advantage of advances in technology.”
