RSS-ifying the State
Jenny Levine, more commonly known as the Shifted Librarian, writes,
Wow - Utah must be the most RSS-ified state in the Union. Check out all of the following feeds they make available to their agencies and citizens (as noted at NewsIsFree):
- Utah and National Public Library News.
"A collection of Utah and National public library news articles, updated dailly."
- Ferret Newsletter
"Web sites of interest to Utah State Agencies. Web sites are chosen for their information on Internet/Technology, Business/Employment, Education, Government, Legal, Health/Science and other topics."
- The Best Information on the Net
"These are the Internet training and workshops provided by the Utah State Library Division for Utah librarians and state agency information professionals. Registration works best using either Internet Explorer or Netscape 6+."
- Training for Utah State Agency Web Content Providers
"The Utah Government Information Locator Service (gilsUtah!) offers agency and government employees free training in Internet searching; metatagging; and best practices in Web design..."
- Utah Government Information
"Popular and Newsworthy information from and about Utah government sources."
Jenny, you're right about the Utah State Library, they are doing a great job and I really appreciate the training they offer on RSS. Utah Interactive, a subsidiary of NIC supports the development of many portions of Utah's website and is working to convert Utah's press release and calendar system to RSS. As the Deputy CIO of eGovernment, I have also encouraged all state [e-government] product managers to take advantage of the Library's training opportunities.
