RSS(sm): Rich Site Services

I am pleased to announce the establishment of my latest Web registry
titled_RSS(sm): Rich Site Services_  _RSS(sm)_ is a categorized registry
of library services that are delivered or provided through RSS/XML feeds
and is available at:

[ http://www.public.iastate.edu/~CYBERSTACKS/RSS.htm  ]

RSS is an initialism for RDF Site Summary / Rich Site Summary / Really
Simple Syndication [ http://www.libraryjournal.com/article/CA296443 ]

RSS(sm) has been seeded with examples in the following groups: 

| ANNOUNCEMENTS | INTERNET RESOURCES GUIDES | NEW BOOKS | NEW JOURNAL
ISSUES | NEWS |

For each entry within a category, a link is provided to a RSS (and/or
XML) link for the item, or an information page that provides a
subsequent link (or more).

I am greatly interested in learning about other examples of ANY and ALL
RSS service(s) provided by any type of Library (academic, corporate,
public, research, special, etc.) for potential inclusion in this new
registry.

I am particularly interested in the use of syndication services such as
that provided by Amazon.com
[http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/subst/xs/syndicate.html/ ] for
Collection Development (or other library service), as well as any that
relate to other types of library services (e.g., ADMINISTRATION |
ACQUISTIONS | CATALOGING | CIRCULATION | DATABASES | INSTRUCTION |
INTERLIBRARY LOAN | ONLINE PUBLIC ACCESS CATALOGS | REFERENCE SERVICES |
TABLE OF CONTENTS , ETC|)

Regards,
