To integrate our resources with the social bookmarking system “del.icio.us”, we have recreated our Virtual Reference site there. Del.icio.us users can easily add us to their network to keep up with new resources being added to the site. An RSS feed is provided for for users who wish to subscribe.
The Virtual Reference Collection page on our site is being enhanced as well: We are using a tool called “FeedDigest” to send the links from our del.icio.us account via RSS into our web page. This makes it easier for the librarians authoring the page to keep it up to date. They simply enter new links into the del.icio.us account, and FeedDigest provides the glue that makes them also appear on our web page.
