DLESE information sent to you, automatically RSS: Real Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary RSS is an XML-based format for distributing and aggregating Web content (such as news headlines). Similar to an email newsletter Content comes to you instead of you looking for it Easier tracking of multiple sources of information Updated more frequently: hourly/ daily A content publisher syndicates a feed DLESE is the publisher Our content is syndicated daily The feeds are written in XML and provide the content


DLESE and RSS Find up-to-the-minute news and supporting educational resources about current Earth events and Earth system science opportunities Current DLESE feeds (or syndications) New resources to the library Newly reviewed resources New resources under review What’s new in DLESE Syndications coming soon News and opportunities Workshops Latest Resources of Interest Resources available for Grade Range/Resource Type/etc.

Personalizing your experience: 

Personalizing your experience Allows DLESE content to be redistributed (a la Reuters) As aggregators pick up DLESE feeds, DLESE content could show up… anywhere! Other libraries can subscribe to DLESE services Future: "Create-a-feed" (Give the user an RSS URL for their own custom Discovery search) Most visited resources - last week/last month/all time Customized search results on a given topic/grade Most frequently searched keyword terms Mailing list thread summaries

Step 1—Look for xml button Step 2—View XML feed and copy address Step 3—Find a news reader and add the feed to the read Behind the scenes: News readers check the feeds that you tell it to, see if there is any new content, and if so, save the content for you to view when you are ready.
