RSS tutorials June 23, 2007

Posted by Mia in Uncategorized.

This nicely paced set of RSS tutorials was created by Jason Eisman for law librarians; but the demos are generic and do a good job of simplifying things.

His introduction page gives some background and provides this description:

Part 1: Introduction (approx. 6 min.) Part 1 introduces RSS as a concept. This tutorial discusses why RSS is important, and looks at an RSS feed.
Part 2: Using an aggregator (approx. 13 min.) Part 2 deals with how to set up an RSS aggregator and subscribe to RSS feeds.
Part 3: Advanced RSS (approx. 15 min.) Part 3 goes over specific tools that law librarians can use to set up RSS feeds which might benefit their libraries.
