The Ultimate RSS Toolbox lists over 120 RSS resources, including RSS desktop- and web-based readers, RSS to email converters, RSS feed validators and creators, Firefox plugins, RSS mixers and mashups and RSS feed directories.

Also, there’s going to be a web seminar sponsored by SirsiDynix on “RSS for Libraries” in August.

What are some of your ideas about how to implement RSS feeds on library webpages or in the library?
