Almost any OAI repository can be accessed as an RSS feed via the ERRoL
service. The URLs for these feeds can be constructed according to this
"http://errol.oclc.org/" + <OAI repository ID> + ".rss"
The OAI repository ID component is defined according to repository
registration records in the OAI Registry at UIUC
Note that these feeds can also be qualified according to OAI sets:
These RSS feeds are generated by transforming OAI responses into RSS format
using an XSLT stylesheet. For details, see the ERRoL project page at
