Unfortunately, when I tried to use Bloglines it was unavailable so I'm going to have to come back & try it. I have used google reader & added RSS feeds to it. I like the fact that all the sites that I visit for news etc is available straight from my google reader & I don't have to go to favourites or type in each address when I want to look at them.
Found a readers advisory blog that I hadn't seen before - looking forward to reading through it when I have a little more time.
I can see how RSS feeds would be useful in filtering information once it's set up & how it could be used in a library or on a library website to show those non techno-phobe people what is happening in our library.
