LibWorm is like someone made a Rollyo with over 1000 LIS related blog feeds. In fact even made smaller Rollyo’s according to subject…technically this is incorrect as Rollyo searches the HTML content of blogs, whereas LibWorm is searching in the RSS content of blogs, so it’s more like ScoopGo. See more search rollers.
What is interesting is that it is also a newsmastering portal for all things LIS, taking the baton from LIS feeds. If you look on the category or subject page, you will see lots of topics, each has a spliced RSS feed, clicking on one will show you the latest posts from the blog sources populating a topic, each hit will link to the source, but only thing is the topic doesn’t list the sources.
And that’s not all, you can even clip a hit to your own clippings folder (have to sign up to use this feature), signing up to MyLibWorm also gives you a space to subscribe to feed categories or subjects in an RSS Reader called “Reading List”:
- posts you read will go into your reading history, and you can remove a post as well, in all it’s the basic elements of an RSS Reader, only thing is your reading choice is default to a river of news.
The sources you chose for your Reading List live in “My Favourite Feeds”, basically a list of the feed categories or subjects you have subscribed to, and each displaying an RSS feed, all it needs is an OPML.
Problem I have is “My Favourite Feeds” should really be called “My Reading List”, and “My Reading List” should be called “My river of news”.
