Documentation: Feeds (RSS, iCal, Atom)
A "feed" for an organisation is generally one of the following:
- Events related to the organisation.
- News items from and about the organisation (This does not include sites which provide an actual news service). E.g. Vice Chancellor opens new building.
- Notices from the organsiation. E.g. Building 23 will be closed on 4th May for essential maintenance.
NB. iCalendar data is probably not going to be news or notices, but please still mark it as events for easy discovery.
The examples on this page require the following prefixes to be defined at the top of your OPD:
@prefix dcterms: <http://purl.org/dc/terms/>
@prefix oo: <http://purl.org/openorg/>
<FEED-URL> a <http://purl.org/xtypes/Document-FEED-TYPE>
oo:organization <ORG-URI> ;
dcterms:subject <http://purl.org/openorg/theme/THEME> ;
dcterms:license <http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/> .
FEED-TYPE is one of: RSS or Atom or iCalendar
THEME is one of: news or events or notices
You can alter the license to use more restrictive licenses, but with feeds like this public domain is recommended. This doesn't mean that people won't credit you as the source of the data, but it removes the obligation for them to do so.
