Abstract

Blog and XML feed technologies have provided new opportunities for information
dissemination and communication. The University of Southern Queensland Library
developed a virtual professional Reading Room using these technologies to provide a
centralised, easily-accessible source for professional reading, based on SDI principles. The
Reading Room also provides a discussion space so that Library staff can exchange views on
readings of interest. This paper outlines the goals of the initiative, the processes used to
establish the Reading Room, and the challenges dealt with along the way. Finally, it provides
a preliminary evaluation of outcomes of the initiative and plans for the future.
