Library News & Research Blog
What is RSS?
RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) feeds are most often from news and blog websites, that contain article
headlines, summaries and links.
RSS is an easy way for you to be alerted when content
that interests you appears on your favorite websites. Instead
of visiting a particular site every day to browse for new articles and features,
RSS automatically sends the information to you.
What tools do I need to use RSS?
You need a special
news reader or aggregator that displays RSS content feeds from websites
you select. There are many different news readers available, many free of charge. Desktop software that you download
and install on your computer as well as web-based news readers are available. Some web browsers like Opera and Safari now have built in RSS capabilities.
Bloglines - web-based reader
Feedster - desktop software
Once you have set up your news reader, you subscribe to the RSS
content feeds you want.
How can I add the Library's blog to my RSS reader?
an RSS icon to obtain the feed URL, which you will see in the "Address" field
of your browser. Copy this URL and follow the instructions for
your particular news reader to subscribe.
