There had been two major usage scenarios which motivated us to introduce various RSS feeds for vLib resource lists about a year ago:
- Updating individual users about new resources available in the Max Planck Society
- Enabling MPG librarians or developers to re-use the resource information available in the vLib portal
Our experiences show that the first use case is pretty obvious to most vLib users while the second requires a lot more explanation… but we are willing to share! Check out the revised documentation of the vLib Resource Feeds to get some ideas and working examples.
