Steven Bell on RSS Aggregators

March 28 AL Direct cites PALINET Technology Conversations podcast featuring Steven Bell, Director of the Gutman Library at Philadelphia University (though he seems to have recently been appointed AUL at Temple University). Bell advocates use of open-source RSS-toHTML converter that produces java script, and then plugs in as newsfeed to Blackboard courseware. Also talks about routing blog postings via RSS to library news channel. Bell has written a tutorial on RSS and news aggregators. Maintains that few Americans know what RSS is, and that, once faculty are shown effectiveness in courseware, usually want it.
