Individuals interested in receiving regular updates from the library can now subscribe to library RSS feeds. In response to user requests to be alerted to new resources and services, the library developed a series of RSS feeds listed at http://library.syr.edu/feeds/. These feeds include resources newly added to the SUMMIT library catalog, library news and events, Web site updates, and Subject Guide updates. RSS (Really Simple Syndication) technology facilitates the delivery of information via a news reader or aggregator. Both MyYahoo and Google portals include feed readers; other examples include Bloglines, NewsGator, and Snarfer. The process of subscribing to an RSS feed is specific to the type of feed reader application chosen; detailed instructions can be found on the web site.
This is Phase I of this service and improvements are continually being made, along with the development of additional feeds in other subject areas. For additional information, please contact library web administrator Angela Ramnarine-Rieks at 443-8709 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
