Web Stuff - Building a Library Catalog Search Page with RSS Display

ImageI recently built a web page to demonstrate an easy way to create a search form you can drop onto any web page that will search your library's online catalog.

The form is accessing the EOS International Sales Department's demonstration catalog. The same model, by changing the specific names, values and URLs, can be used to access many other SQL based online databases.

It also includes a demonstration of and link to one of my favorite tools, "Feed2JS", which takes RSS feeds and turns them into web content.

None of this is bleeding edge gee whiz rocket science. It's all pretty basic, but that doesn't make it any less useful.
