Blogging and RSS
A Librarian's Guide
By Michael P. Sauers
Libraries increasingly use blogs and RSS feeds
to reach out to users, while librarians blog daily
on a range of personal and professional topics.
The way has been paved by the tech-savvy and
resource-rich, but any library or librarian can
successfully create and syndicate a blog today.
In this readable book, author, Internet trainer,
and blogger Michael P. Sauers, M.L.S., shows
how blogging and RSS technology can be
easily and effectively used in the context of a
library community. Sauers showcases interesting and useful blogs,
shares insights from librarian bloggers, and offers step-by-step
instructions for creating, publishing, and syndicating a blog using
free Web-based services, software, RSS feeds, and aggregators.
