Thanks to friends and fellow librarians Marianne Lenox and Andy Woodworth, I have discovered the beauty of Google Reader Bundles. Essentially, a “bundle” is a package of RSS feeds–this could be from a folder of your favorite RSS feeds on a topic, such as librarianship, or tags you have in your Google Reader. You can use the bundle feature to share your favorite “package” of feeds in your shared items; you can even add a clip of your bundle to your website, blog, or wiki! You can also email your bundle or add a regular link to the bundle to your favorite web space.
Bundles are a terrific way to share and discover what your peers and colleagues are reading! For easy instructions on how to get started with bundles in Google Reader, check out these two terrific and easy to follow “how to” blog posts/articles.
