I can think of multiple ways of doing this depending on what you have.
All would require some work to get around various
problems/limitations. I'm only familiar with the XML server so others
can probably tell you how doable other routes are.
If you have the xml server then you can create a featured list of new
books and pull that. Keeping it updated would be either manual or
expat scripts. You can transform it straight to rss but I would
recommend caching it to another database so you can do more
advanced/custom feeds and also put up a web-based interface to it. I'm
currently working on something similar to this.
Again I've never used any of the non-xml interfaces so other people
can probably tell you more. This is my understanding from talking to a
few people. Alternatively I believe you can export records from a list
either manually or again expat. If it's from Millenium I think you can
do a CSV which shouldn't be too hard to put in a database. If it's
character-based I think it's Marc. If so then it may be easiest to use
a regex to get the bib number from each record and then use xrecord to
get the rest of the information for the database.
What kind of lists, how many and how often to update will depend on
what kind of feeds you want (subject-based new book feeds, etc) and
how often things are added.

We're a consortium and would like to create an RSS feed with a new books
list. Has anyone done this? If so, how did you do it?
What scripts did you write to pull the data from the III system?
