"Making sense of RSS" - a pilot workshop

Dear all

As the use of RSS and news feeds increases on the NLH website, we thought we would trial a "Making Sense of RSS" workshop, for those people who feel that they don't know much about RSS or how they could use it within their library services.

If the pilot workshops are successful and useful, we will look at running them in different locations around the country.

There are 2 dates available in Manchester, with a maximum of 12 places available on each:

Tuesday 12th April - 10am - 1pm
Monday 18th April - 1pm - 4pm

Venue: Waulk Mill, Bengal Street, Ancoats, M4 6LN (5 mins in a taxi, or about 20 mins walk from Piccadilly - map and parking info available on request!)

The objectives of the session are:

  • to raise awareness amongst library staff of RSS as a method of informing health professionals of clinical information
  • to give library staff an opportunity for guided hands-on practice with RSS feeds and readers

The sessions are being provided free of charge by the NeLH - you will have to make your own travel arrangements.

If you would like to book a place on one of the Manchester sessions, please email NeLH, stating which date you would prefer. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, and you will receive confirmation of your booking by email.

Best wishes
