RSS Feeds

What is an RSS Feed?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS is a system that allows a user to get automatic updates from websites whenever new content is published on these sites. It acts like a personal Web reader by checking your selected sites regularly for new content. If you subscribe to an RSS feed, you will be notified whenever a new item is posted. The notification takes place in an RSS Reader.

How do I start using RSS Feeds?

To use a site's RSS feature, an RSS reader is required.

  1. Choose an RSS reader. Most Internet Browsers can display RSS feeds for you. An Internet search will return many RSS reader options.
  2. Once you've chosen an RSS reader, follow the instructions to use that reader.
  3. An orange RSS button will display the content availability on this site. Click the orange RSS button to add the feed to your RSS reader. With some readers, you may have to right-click the RSS link and copy the URL into your RSS reader.
