Making RSS feeds

At Jenny Levine's ISLMA session on blogs, wikis and rss we learned about the usefulness of RSS.
(Real Simple Syndication). After learning more about RSS from The Shifted Librarian wiki page I practiced with RSS on the New Trier library blog and decided to find a way to add an RSS feed to the AP Jr. Theme BlackBoard site for NY Times editorials. Not sure if this is a possibility with our version of BlackBoard. However, I finally figured out how to add an RSS feed to the blog. If you scroll down and look to the left sidebar you will see a NY Times feed for editorials. The best site to use to generate the java script is Feed2JS. The tricky part is to find the correct spot to paste it into the html of the blog template.
