New RSS feeds alert educators to new content at the Library of Congress web site

Responding to public requests for alerts about additions to the Library of Congress’ digital collections, LOC has launched a series of news feeds using RSS (Really Simple Syndication) technology. The library’s RSS service has launched with the following feeds: news; upcoming events, including free concerts, lectures, exhibitions, films, and other special programs; updates on new collections, features, and reference materials available on the LOC web site; and new webcasts and podcasts of lectures and library-sponsored events. The RSS feeds include “What’s New in Science Reference,” featuring new products and services related to the subjects of science and technology from the library’s Science, Technology, and Business Division. These new RSS feeds join four existing feeds from the library’s U.S. Copyright Office on current copyright-related legislation; announcements, rules, proposed rules, and other notices published in the Federal Register; NewsNet (alerts on hearings, deadlines for comments, new and proposed regulations, and new publications); and updates to the Copyright Office web site. LOC says it will launch additional feeds in specific content and subject areas in the coming months.
