Only 30% of UK repositories have working RSS feeds

Stuart Lewis and Les Carr have discovered that only 8 of the 26 UK DSpace repositories listed in ROAR have working RSS feeds.

Lewis and Carr are trying aggregate all the world's repository feeds.  Lewis:

There has started to be a lot of talk about what services feeds could enable us to build, and I predict that we’ll start seeing some novel and exciting uses of these feeds over the coming year. Enable your feeds, expose yourself, and be part of it!

If you're a DSpace repository manager, Lewis' post explains how to activate the feed.
