Mashing Up RSS

I posted about the recent report about RSS and content here, and now these notes for publishers appear at Matt McAllister’s blog, and it’s oh so HOT to think about some of them for libraries, especially:

1) Do your own mash ups. Pick up content from aggregators, tagging tools, and other sources to complement every item you post. Every news article, product review, column and blog entry should be a microportal to relevant things that help readers dive deeper into that subject. In most cases, the best links will not be related links on your own site.

I think libraries could create some great mash ups of content for users, say from local news feeds, world news, new materials/reviews, tech news, commentary, etc.
