There is no shortage of articles describing the nature of blogs and RSS feeds and their potential use in libraries. However, articles describing the implementation and evaluation of RSS for library current awareness services and the lessons learned along the way are harder to find. This case study relates the experience of implementing an RSS feed-based current awareness service in a small special library in Canada, and the preliminary uptake and feedback of the staff it serves.
