  • 4. Do you recognize RSS?
  • 5. 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.
  • 6. RSS Family Tree
    • Recognized by various terminology:
      • XML, ATOM, RSS feed, RSS channel, RSS steam, syndicated feed, & webfeed
    • Several versions are used:
      • RSS 0.9, RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0, Atom
  • 7. 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
  • 8. 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
  • 9. 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?
  • 10. How do I access RSS?
    • RSS readers, feed readers, feed aggregators or news readers
    • Desktop, Web Based, Built-in, or Email Based
  • 11. Desktop
    • Requires installation on computer
  • 12. Built-in Aggregators
    • Web browsers, plug-ins, etc.
  • 13. Email Based Aggregators
    • Microsoft Outlook
  • 14. Web Based Access
  • 15. 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?
  • 16. 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
  • 17. Other Websites
    • RSS Integration:
    • MyYahoo
    • Google Personalized Homepage
    • RefWorks
  • 18. Examples of Sites with Feeds
    • ESPN
    • Plain Dealer Updates
    • Chemical Abstract Service
    • IEEE Journals
    • OhioLINK EJC
  • 19. My Library Offers RSS Feeds
    • http://library.case.edu/ksl/rss/
  • 20. RSS in Databases & Publisher Websites
    • Create a RSS alert directly from a result lists, a search history, or a publication’s table of contents.
  • 21. Another Trick to Finding RSS
    • Add “RSS” to your search engine searches.
