About RSS

What are RSS Feeds?  Copy this link to your RSS news reader.

RSS (Real Simple Syndication) feeds are a convenient spam-free way to track new materials, news, or other content that is updated periodically. To read the material delivered in a feed, you need an RSS reader or news aggregator (see ‘Find an RSS Reader’ below). To subscribe to a library feed, click the orange RSS button; in the page that appears, copy the url and paste it into your reader. Or simply drag the orange RSS button into your reader. The method you use depends on your reader. See the instructions for the reader.
