OpenSearch RSS

The uses for RSS just keep on growing. OpenSearch RSS allows search results to be used by RSS tools.
OpenSearch RSS 1.0 is an extension to the RSS 2.0 standard, conforming to the guidelines for RSS extensibility as outlined by the RSS 2.0 specification. The intent is to provide a standard format for returning results for a search query. This extension is designed to be backward compatible with existing RSS readers.
We can open our catalogs using Z39.50, OAI, SRU/SRW. Here is another possible tool to make that content available to a wider community.
