Open Data Protocol

SDShare — Protocol for the Syndication of Semantic Descriptions

OASIS Content Management Interoperability Services

PubSubHubbub Core 0.3:

Atom is also being used as the format for ebook catalogs. Calibre provides it out of the box at the catalog address followed by “/stanza” although I don’t see it obviously advertised as actually being there.
