Just got this nice letter from Eli Neiburger at the AADL. This is the first I've heard of these plans, which sound great - and at the end he says
> P.S. We love your blog.
so I figure I should be OK in sharing it here. To wit:
From: Eli Neiburger <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Thanks for taking the time to contact us with your suggestion about
RSS at the library. We are currently in the process of moving to a new
library automation system (Innovative Millennium), and it will launch with a
completely new aadl.org website (based on Drupal) that will deliver all
kinds of new features, including RSS. We're still in the development phase,
so I can't yet guarantee this specific functionality at launch, but we hope
to provide RSS feeds of not only newly-arrived items, but also newly-ordered
items, so that you can get on the request list before it even arrives. We
also hope to eventually offer custom RSS feeds of new items, by genre,
author, or keyword, but we'll have to get to know our new system better
before we'll know if we can pull that off.
Rest assured that useful, flexible, and broad RSS support is a major
design goal of our new website, and we hope our feeds will find good homes in aggregators throughout the district... and beyond! Watch for the new aadl.org coming in early July .
Thanks again for your feedback, and thanks for using the Library!

P.S. We love your blog.
