      • Lets Play
    • Do you recognize RSS?
    • What is RSS?
      • R eally S imple S yndication
      • R ich S ite S ummary
      • R DF S ite S ummary
      • User-initiated subscriptions that provide updates, news headlines, or other content directly to the user for browsing at their convenience.
    • RSS Family Tree
      • Recognized by various terminology:
        • XML, ATOM, RSS feed, RSS channel, RSS stream, syndicated feed, & webfeed
      • Several versions are used:
        • RSS 0.9, RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0, Atom
    • Benefits of Using RSS
      • Receive updates without visiting each web site
      • Can monitor large number of sites very effectively
      • Short summaries or “table of contents”
      • Alternative to email notifications
        • Reduce spam building opportunities
        • Reduce “out of office” messages
        • No rejection of messages by email filters
        • Not “tracked” like an email subscription
    • Blogs vs. RSS – NOT the Same
      • Blog or weblog is a web site that contains relatively short entries, usually in chronological order
      • A blog can “generate” RSS feeds, depending on the blogging software
      • Content versus Delivery
    • RSS Uses
      • Blog entries
      • Photos
      • Podcasts
      • Music
      • Library Circulation Records
      • Table of Contents
      • Any data that is constantly updated or added to
      • What can you think of?
    • How do I access RSS?
      • RSS readers, feed readers, feed aggregators or news readers
      • Desktop, Web Based, Built-in, or Email Based
    • Desktop
      • Requires installation on computer
    • Built-in Aggregators
      • Web browsers, plug-ins, etc.
    • Email Based Aggregators
      • Microsoft Outlook
    • Web Based Access
    • RSS Changing Our Patrons
      • Moving away from email & listservs
      • Current Awareness
      • “ Pull” rather than “Push”
      • Sharing everything
      • Privacy?
      • Speed
      • My thought: A few years ago people would say “If not on the Internet, it is not legitimate” Is RSS the next thing patrons use to judge the value and currency of products & services?
    • Sharing with OPML
      • OPML - Outline Processor Markup Language
      • A collection of RSS feeds can be shared by an OPML file and imported by others into their RSS readers/aggregators
      • Great way to create reading or additional resource lists for a class or organization
    • Other Websites
      • RSS Integration:
      • MyYahoo
      • Google Personalized Homepage
      • RefWorks
    • Examples of Sites with Feeds
      • ESPN
      • Plain Dealer Updates
      • Chemical Abstract Service
      • IEEE Journals
      • OhioLINK EJC
    • My Library Offers RSS Feeds
      • http://library.case.edu/ksl/rss/
    • RSS in Databases & Publisher Websites
      • Create a RSS alert directly from a result lists, a search history, or a publication’s table of contents.
    • Another Trick to Finding RSS
      • Add “RSS” to your search engine searches.
