Feeds also allow information providers to send this information in the format necessary for users to subscribe. This three hour hands-on workshop will introduce attendees to both providing and consuming content via RSS.

The Wonderful World of Wikis
Many have heard of Wikipedia, but just what is a wiki? This workshop will take a look at not only Wikipedia, but other high-profile wikis and show attendees just what a wiki is and how it can be used in the library environment. In this half-day, hands-on workshop, attendees will gain an understanding of what wikis are and the technologies behind them, explore Wikipedia and other public wikis and learn about the psychology and sociology of wiki-based resources, and create their own wiki on a project of their choice. (Please bring an idea or two with you.)
