What is RSS?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It’s a way for you to automatically receive news, updates, and other content from Web sites. The Library uses RSS feeds for library services’ blog postings, upcoming events, news, and announcements. Whenever you are reading a page and see the RSS icon ( ), you can click on it for the link to that feed. We also provide a list below with all the different feeds available for you to subscribe.
To subscribe to an RSS feed, you will need an aggregator, or news reader. An aggregator is just a piece of software that manages your RSS feeds and displays them for you to view. There are many websites that provide this service for free; some of the most popular are Bloglines, Google Reader, and My Yahoo!. You can also subscribe to RSS feeds directly in newer Web browsers such as Firefox 3 and Internet Explorer 7+.
