Technical Information

Notes about the RSS feed: There is only one <channel> and it is consistent through every year. All elements are present in every <item> (no additional elements are introduced through the history of the RSS feed). Empty elements are present in the format <faculty></faculty> rather than being omitted or using the more syntactically correct <faculty/>. The XML is ordered by <startDate> (<pubDate> relates to the appearance of the item on the web publishing system and is not consistent with the <startDate> or significant for understanding the RSS feed). In instances where there are two elements with similar names (e.g. <department> and <department_fb> the former has multiple values delimited by commas and the latter (where "_fb" is used in the name) has multiple values delimited by pipes.
