Information

RSS is a family of XML file formats for web syndication used by news websites and weblogs. RSS allows a website's frequent readers to track updates on the site using a news aggregator or a Firefox live bookmark. It provides an easy method to republish information from one source (a weblog, a news service, a database) to another through such tools as Feed2JS.

Examples of RSS from the Catalog

If your library is offering RSS feeds out of your catalog, please note the URL here under your vendor's heading and include the software version you are running on. Please also note if the feeds are provided natively out of the OPAC or if you have implemented them using your own programmer(s). Even better, if you or someone else is displaying one or more of those feeds on a website, please include a link to it!

Alexandrie

SAPHIR (Swiss Automated Public Health Information Resources), catalog searches. Subject Feeds (news and recently cataloged titles) also displayed on the library web site. Implementations by the system librarian, Pablo Iriarte (work described at http://archivesic.ccsd.cnrs.fr/sic_00079211)
