Sessions - Mashups


Session led by Toby McAleer

Toby demonstrated with a hands-on tutorial, the ATO eLibraries use of RSS by mashing up feeds and displaying them within the SirsiDynix EPS Rooms application.

Toby's first session was so popular he did an 'encore' performance.

Toby highlighted the advantages of Google Reader and Yahoo Pipes, which is another feed aggregator on the horizon. He talked about getting RSS feeds directly into the OPAC via the use of a snippet of html script. For those who missed this very informative session.....CLICK HERE for the presentation.

This was a great session. I could see so many applications for mashups and RSS feeds that were useful in special, uni and public libraries
