More on Innovative & RSS in the OPAC  
LibrarianInBlack has an update on the use of RSS in Innovative's 2006 release of Millennium:

" Library staff can insert customized RSS feeds into catalog pages (for library events, booklists, etc.)
Any search run using Boolean can be turned into an RSS feed. This means that new items that fall into the search parameters of a patron's choosing can be fed to them (kind of like Preferred Searches)"

I may be reading the press release wrong, but it seems to me that only librarians can create feeds from Boolean searches. Which is good, as far as it goes. But, thinking as a user, I don't want librarian-generated feeds - I want to create my own!

Maybe in the 2007 release...
