LibWorm - New Search Tool for the Biblioblogosphere

A new tool for searching through the world of library blogs has appeared in beta version: LibWorm that claims to aggregate content from 1400 RSS feeds.

Some interesting features include:
  • search results can themselves be output as an RSS feed
  • there are pre-defined "feed categories", which are sites grouped together by the creators and to which one can subscribe (example: law libraries)
  • there are also pre-defined "feed subjects", essentially saved searches (example: podcasting)
More from medical librarian David Rothman, the co-creator of LibWorm, Meredith Farkas from Information Wants To Be Free, and from Stephen Abram, SirsiDynix VP of Innovation.
