Breezy Day

Today I attended the Breezing Along with the RML session Developing and Marketing an RSS Journal Service for Your Library. Is “attended” is the correct verb? Participated? I’ve never used that online presentation software before and it seemed to work fairly well. We could simultaneously see the presenters, their PowerPoint presentation or internet screen, comments and questions from the participants. I couldn’t read the smallest print on the presentation slides on my screen, however. Having to use the phone for the audio portion of the session seems so awkward to me.

I saw the presentation in Omaha and wanted to listen again so that I could get more details. Taking one of their ideas, I’m setting up a demonstration feed reader account to show to some of my library users. Right now I’m setting it up with the table of contents feeds from the the library’s surgery journals. I’m amazed to find that the Elsevier journals do not seem to have a table of contents feed. Am I missing something here? I might just have to set up a feed from PubMed for those journals. Anyone out there have a better idea?

  1. Hi Clare;
    Allan told me about the blog.
    Science Direct has feeds–is that how you get your jrnls? I know there were issues w/ Elsevier, and I yelled at them at MLA last year, only to be shown the Sci Dir. feeds which had just recently gone live.
