This is great for keyword searches! I'm trying to subscribe to "information architecture" as a subject feed and the results look pretty icky in Bloglines for some reason: each post is one gigantic paragraph which includes comments, like a long stream of consciousness gone completely crazy. I can't read that! It scares me. Wonder if it has something to do with Bloglines? Seems to be dropping the HTML info so the resulting text has no structure.
I subscribed to the "Academic Libraries" feed category and found it pretty underwhelming. It's much too broad a search, for starters. That's a (canned) category feed. I'm also trying the (canned) subject feed "information architecture". Too bad they don't outline the search strategies for the subject searches. Difficult to read on my laptop too: horizontal scrolling required, in addition to lack of structure in the posts.
Hi Gen."Academic Libraries" is, as you wrote, a Feed Category, not a search. The posts there are from every feed indexed by LibWorm that originates from an academic library. To see the detail of the Subject searches, just look at the URL. Best,-David RothmanCo-creator, LibWorm.com
