Gear Up Your Research Guides with the Emerging OPML Codes
Outline Processor Markup Language is an emerging format that can allow you to create customized research packages to push to patrons. It’s a way to gather collections of Web resources (links, RSS feeds, multimedia files), organize them as outlines, and publish them in a format that others can share and even subscribe to.

(This Ajax quickly refreshes once sent, not refreshes one scent.)
