What is RSS?
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a technology that allows you to receive updated news from preferred websites, which are sent directly to the user’s news reader. This includes the headlines, summaries and links to the full article on the website.
What are the benefits of using RSS?
RSS is an easy way to be notified about updated content on a website. Instead of having to visit a particular website, RSS will automatically send a notification when the subscribed section has been updated.
What tools do I need to use RSS?
To begin using RSS, a news reader is necessary. There are several desktop applications that can be used, as well as some web based ones. We recommend using Google Reader (http://www.google.ca/reader/) or Bloglines (http://www.bloglines.com/), which can be used through any web browser.
How can I sign up to RSS feeds?
To subscribe to an RSS feed, select the location of the website of interest and click the small orange button (these buttons usually only exist on the Events, Press Releases, and Presentations) to subscribe to the RSS feed. Next, simply follow the instructions for the particular RSS reader being used.
