Blogging has skyrocketed in the past few years as a means for people to share their experiences and their opinions. In the past few years, Brooklyn Law School has hosted a series of blogs and bloggers with legal subject expertise in a variety of subject areas. All have different backgrounds and perspectives.
Brooklyn Law School (BLS) Bloggers’ Roundtable connects faculty, staff and student bloggers and online journalists with each other. The Roundtable provides training and resources to enhance blogger skills.
We encourage active faculty bloggers (but are not limited to): Minna Kotkin, Derek Bambauer, Victoria Szymczak and Bill Araiza to join us. If you are a student blogger, let us know who you are and give us the URL to your blog.
Come join us at the BLS Bloggers’ Roundtable, share tips and learn some new ones on December 2, 2009. We will be discussing RSS feed readers and news aggregators. For more information contact Karen Schneiderman, Emerging Technologies Librarian
- These tools let you follow news and blogs easily, comfortably and efficiently in a dedicated program, on a web site or in your email program.
- These tools provide either just the blog headlines or the headline and a short description (or even the whole text) of each item. Some readers use a Web interface, some are a desktop program, separate from your web browser. Some readers let you easily post what you’re reading to your own weblog .
Some people call these tools feed aggregators, they are also known as a feed readers, RSS readers, news readers or simply aggregators. Technically, it requires a client software or a Web application to aggregate syndicated web content such as news headlines, blogs, podcasts, and vlogs in a single location for easy viewing.
Here are some resources about RSS Readers:
