Tame the Web this week has a great little guide on Teaching RSS to Reference Librarians. He’s got great links to other resources that will educate and inspire librarians to get excited about RSS. The Kansas City Public Library System and the Minneapolis Public Library are good examples of public libraries that have embraced RSS, but so many are starting to use it these days. Still, I find a lot of people in the library field who don’t know what RSS is. The director of SEFLIN (Southeast Florida Library Information Network) came to speak to one of my classes this semester and, when asked, said he had no idea what RSS was. SEFLIN’s goal is “to pioneer innovative technology to deliver optimum library services to Southeast Florida.” Doesn’t bode well for my part of the world, now does it?
