Forthcoming Book on RSS and Libraries

A book that Information Today will publish on October 31 looks very interesting. It’s Blogging and RSS: A Librarian’s Guide by Michael Sauers. While I haven’t read the book yet (I’m not on anybody’s PR list…), the abstract at Amazon makes it look very interesting:

Libraries increasingly use blogs and RSS feeds to reach out to users, while librarians blog daily on a range of personal and professional topics. The way has been paved by the tech-savvy and resource-rich, but any library or librarian can successfully create and syndicate a blog today. In this readable book, author, Internet trainer, and blogger Michael P. Sauers, M.L.S., shows how blogging and RSS technology can be easily and effectively used in the context of a library community. Sauers showcases interesting and useful blogs, shares insights from librarian bloggers, and offers step-by-step instructions for creating, publishing, and syndicating a blog using free Web-based services, software, RSS feeds, and aggregators.

I’ve preordered it… And will post a review here once I’ve read it.
