RSSNot only did the Library of Congress join the blogosphere, they’ve also wholeheartedly embraced all things RSS, to keep the public up to date on all the happenings at the library and its web site. Their RSS feeds page features eighteen different feeds organized into three separate groups. The “General News from the Library” feeds keep readers abreast of postings on the Library of Congress blog, upcoming events, and new webcasts. Meanwhile the “News for Specified Audiences” section has more topical feeds, providing updates for those interested in specific subjects like digital preservation, news for teachers, what’s new in science reference, and poetry news, to name a few. A probably much smaller audience will be interested in the copyright related feeds that provide updates on current copyright legislation, Federal Register Notices, hearing alerts, and more. For more information on RSS subscriptions see the Library of Congress’s feed FAQ page, and never be out of the loop again.
