Here's the latest BUZZ from Pierce Library. Although many of you may not be able to attend the on-campus RSS Feed sessions or the Law Library Open House, I want you to know what is happening in the library. If you've got questions about RSS Feeds, send them to me via the Answerland webform. Be sure to note the new BioOne database! - Connie

  1. Connie, I saw some code laying around in one of the posts. 9not the RSS one that I think is supposed to be there!) What is that about? I like the freshness of the page!!! Is this fun for you?

  2. I'm not seeing any code in the blog posting of the Buzz, Sharon. Are you still seeing it from your computer?
