RSS icon  What is RSS?

RSS can save time keeping up with news, blogs, podcasts, vodcasts, and web sites by making your news come to you.

What you need:

  • A feed reader (e.g. Feedly, InoReader, or RSSOwl). See "Choosing a Feed Reader" below for information about using your favorite Internet or email applications as feed readers.
  • An RSS, Atom, or other feed (look for the above icon on your favorite sites)


Choosing a Feed Reader

A feed reader collects your RSS feeds together. Your web browser or email reader may function as a feed reader. Check below for instructions.
