I use Bloglines to read my feeds online - I've never used any of the desktop aggregators. I can point you to our Library's RSS feeds page: http://www.jenkinslaw.org/collection/rsslist.php There is a link at the top to learn more and it points you to other aggregators. It will also give you an idea of what we're providing via RSS for our patrons.
Hope that helps.

As an overworked, solo, special librarian I'm about two years behind with
all the latest technology etc, but I would like to start using RSS feeds
to stay up to date. (Once I knew what I was doing, I would look to
introduce it to my library clients as well)
I would appreciate any suggestions - based on your own experiences - for
a web-based aggregator and for a desktop (Windows) aggregator (I.T. says
they wont allow me to download any, but I am working on them!).
I am interested primarily in free services, but if there are any
subscription or fee based products that you would highly recommend, I
would appreciate hearing about them.
I would also appreciate links to any online reviews etc particularly on
their use in libraries . I have found that there is so much information
out there it is confusing.
Thanks in anticipation
