Hurray for OCPL!

I know it is a little off-topic, but I wanted to take a few minutes to thank my local public library for a couple of services I just noticed today.

First, Onondaga County Public Library has a new visual discovery tool which is neat:

In addition to the visual discovery on the left and titles with summaries in the middle, the right side of the page lets the user filter search results by format, author, subject, language, series, year, or data sources. But that’s not even the cool part.

The cool part is that OCPL has RSS feeds from their catalogue. šŸ™‚

Patrons can now subscribe to a feed of all new additions to the catalog, or to feeds containing new items that match their query.

I’d still like to see a feed for their events calendar, and I’d love to see them do some blogging- but this is a great start.
