RSS or Rich Site Syndication (also 'Really Simple Syndication) feeds are free information feeds from websites that contain headlines, summaries and links to full page articles. Special news readers, called "RSS Readers" or "RSS Aggregators" are required to be able to use RSS feeds. Options for news readers include plug-ins for Outlook and Firefox, built-in applications in internet search engines like Internet Explorer, Safari and stand-alone applications. Though we do not endorse any particular reader, using the Microsoft Outlook reader will allow content to be delivered right to your inbox. To explore this option, see below. Please note that Google Chrome does not have a built in RSS Feed reader like Internet Explorer and other internet search engines. If you prefer to use Chrome, use the help menu to determine how to download an RSS Feed reader. You can also find other RSS reader applications by searching Google.
Why use RSS?
RSS is an easy way to gather a wide variety of content in one place on your computer. Rather than visiting different websites to find new content, a RSS reader presents it to you on one screen. Many RSS readers also 'alert' you when new content from your favorite website is delivered.
