I’m working with the Mid-Hudson Library System on a 10 week 23 things online learning project, which is part of their Building Your BaseÂ project, a 2 year grant funded project focusing on helping library staff explore new ways to connect their communities.
The example here is an RSS feed for the Hudson Valley Reads readers advisory newsletters. Using the free tool feed2js, I was able to create snippet of code that pulls the latest updates from that feed into a little box or “widget” that could be placed on a library web site – or on a community organization website (get your info out of the library!). Direct links to interesting topics are more likely to catch a customers eye than a simple link to the product as a whole.
