RSS Feed Readers

I set up my first feed reader, a MyYahoo! account about 2 years ago. I use it to demonstrate the practical application of RSS feeds to adult students and business people. I see no reason to set up a bloglines account, when my MyYahoo! page works just fine.

I can use EbscoHost, or ProQuest to set up an RSS feed with full text journal articles. The problem with this service is, I cannot read the full text of the articles when I am not in the library, because of authentication requirements from the database provider.

I can set up RSS feeds from blogs I admire, like the Kegliography, Common Craft, and Library Bytes to stay informed.
