Jeffries, Sandra and Wallis, Corey (2006) Exploring the application of RSS for library staff professional development and SDI services. In: VALA 13th Biennial Conference and Exhibition (VALA2006), 8-10 Feb 2006, Melbourne, Australia.
Blog and XML feed technologies have provided new opportunities for information dissemination and communication. The University of Southern Queensland Library developed a virtual professional Reading Room using these technologies to provide a centralised, easily-accessible source for professional reading, based on SDI principles. The Reading Room also provides a discussion space so that Library staff can exchange views on readings of interest. This paper outlines the goals of the initiative, the processes used to establish the Reading Room, and the challenges dealt with along the way. Finally, it provides a preliminary evaluation of outcomes of the initiative and plans for the future.
