It also attempts to reach new users and better serve current ones though improved customer-driven offerings.

Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it. Why RSS? Benefits and Reasons for using RSSRSS solves a problem for people who regularly use the web. It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually. You ensure your privacy, by not needing to join each site's email newsletter. The number of sites offering RSS feeds is growing rapidly and includes big names like Yahoo News. What do I need to do to read an RSS Feed? RSS Feed Readers and News AggregatorsFeed Reader or News Aggregator software allow you to grab the RSS feeds from various sites and display them for you to read and use. A variety of RSS Readers are available for different platforms. Some popular feed readers include Amphetadesk (Windows, Linux, Mac), FeedReader (Windows), and NewsGator (Windows - integrates with Outlook). There are also a number of web-based feed readers available. My Yahoo, Bloglines, and Google Reader are popular web-based feed readers. Once you have your Feed Reader, it is a matter of finding sites that syndicate content and adding their RSS feed to the list of feeds your Feed Reader checks. Many sites display a small icon with the acronyms RSS, XML, or RDF to let you know a feed is available. *Library 2.0 applies Web 2.0 ideas to libraries.*is user-centeredis everywheresocially rich: library presence (and web presence) includes users presences. Both synchronous (IM) and asynchronous (wikki) ways for user sto communicate with each other and with libarians. invites participationprovides multi-media experiencesis communally innovative: rests on the foundation of libraries as a community service, but understands that as communities change, libraries must not only change with them, but must also allow users to change the library.

Why waste time investing in this? </p> <p>Why duplicate efforts if library is building website? </p> <p>Isnt this a waste of time? *University libraries have a somewhat different focus. The Undergraduate Library at the University of IllinoisUrbana-Champaign (, for example, lets students know about upcoming deadlines (5 days left to return ALL media items), service issues (Access to EBSCO through wireless is down. You can still access EBSCO through desktop PCs), and other topics of interest to its audience (UGL is hiring for Spring 09! Applications @ the front desk). The Yale University Science Libraries ( announce workshops on library resources, provide links to online archives, and give tips on sending text messages to a librarian. North Carolina State University Engineering Library ( links to both university and external blog posts. </p> <p>*University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign*Blogging was initially considered more risky, but now, many professionals are making a name for themselves in their profession with blogs and libraries are no exception.</p> <p>*Duke University Libraries, Biddle Beat (The official blog of the Music Library at Duke) Duke University Libraries, Digital Collections Blog (Notes from the Digital Collections Team at Duke) Duke University Libraries, Library Hacks (Tips and tools to save you time) Duke University Libraries, Scholarly Communications (Duke's source for advice and information about copyright and publication issues) Duke University Medical Center Library *What is a Wiki anyway?Awiki is an information database. A place where people can view, maintain and co-author documents.Online wikis (like Team Wiki) allow that information to be accessible from anywhere.A'team' wiki maintains a list of authorized users which makes it more useful for organizational use.How would a wiki improve team collaboration?Awiki provides a key piece of the online collaboration puzzle. There is little doubt that sharing of information via the internet has revolutionized the way we work. However, this information is generally difficult to edit and maintain. Typically, information flows one-way from author--&gt;reader. What if we could pool everyone's know-how to maintain the most accurate, up-to-date information? What ifit was super easy for anyoneto edit web content, opening up the possibility of co-authoring and sharing information collaboratively.This is what wikis aim to do: they allow a group of people to co-author online information. This enables experts and authorities in a group to share know-how, procedures, and other information and enables teams to jointly contribute to that information. Wiki's enable all information to be located in one place,accessible from anywhere, to whoever is authorized to access it (however, only 'team' wikis provide multi-user authorization functions). With most wikis, that information is fully and instantly searchable.*Can either record audio only or include video, which would be in another panel.*Previously, we had digitized all audio (albums) into MP3 files, but had access problems, especially off-campus. *iTunes U, part of the iTunes Store, is possibly the worlds greatest collection of free educational media available to students, teachers, and lifelong learners. With over 200,000 educational audio and video files available, iTunes U* has quickly become the engine for the mobile learning movement. It puts the power of the iTunes Store in the hands of qualifying universities so they can distribute their educational media to their students or to the world. </p> <p>Internal iTunes U SiteIf you want to allow access only to members of your campus, you can host your own password-protected iTunes U site. This enables you to create and manage the content available on the site, while controlling who can access and download resources from it. </p> <p>External iTunes U SiteYou also have the option of making your course material available to all iTunes visitors alongside content created by Yale, Stanford, UC Berkeley, Oxford, Cambridge, MIT, PBS stations, and some of the most creative K-12 state projects in the country. External sites are also a great recruitment tool, offering an inexpensive way to explain the benefits your school has to offer. With an open iTunes U presence, your school will gain recognition and a competitive edge as you reach out and share your knowledge with the world.Media should be in AAC, MP3, MPEG-4, or PDF format.</p> <p>*From 2007 July-August Library Technology Report, Marshall Breeding.*Similar searches (those who liked this, also searched for. . . )User-added tagsCustomer-written reviewsBlogsReputation rankingSuggest to friends link for emailCitation creator</p> <p>**</p> <p>AquaBrowser Library integrates with a librarys online catalog and acts as a search tool and interface. It connects to the librarys catalog, sources the library subscribes to, or shares with other organizations. AquaBrowser performs an instant search for the term(s) the user enters with the functionality and ease of access of Internet search engines. AquaBrowser widens the scope of a typical catalog search by incorporating three distinct design principles, known as Search, Discover and Refine.*ImplementationAn AquaBrowser implementation is straightforward and quick.
