RSS Feeds


RSS stands for "Rich Site Summary" and also "Really Simple Syndication." It's a way to keep up with favorite websites, blogs, etc, and having the material delivered to one place. In other words, you can set up a subscription and all new posts from selected sites will appear on your home page, such as Google Reader.

Libraries can embed "widgets" for RSS feeds. With one click, a user can have set up a "subscription" to the library's site, and be notified of events, news stories, blog posts, etc. The following list of articles is fed from Library Journal - Latest News. Every time a new article is posted there, it will appear at the top of the list here.
