Week #4 ♦ Thing #8 ♦ RSS Feeds

I set up my Google Reader account over a week ago, but I was waiting to post until I had some time to see if I like it or not. At first I found myself going to all the websites I usually go to, just out of habit. I had to remind myself to go to my Google Reader account, but once I got into a routine, it was great to have all of that information there in one place! It can get overwhelming though- to see so much information at one time. I feel pressured to read everything!

This is just one more example of how libraries can keep their finger on the pulse of a technology-centered society. RSS feeds connect patrons to news and events and can be used to provide all types of information.


  1. yes, providing news and other timely info for patrons would be a great service

  2. Just a side note about RSS feeds... I was working on another project and just happened to roll my curser across the top of my Internet browser. It landed on an RSS feeds icon- I never paid attention to it before. Now that I recognize the symbol I was curious what it was doing there. I clicked on it and it told me that there were two RSS feeds available on the page. What a cool feature!
