RSS is alive and well!

RSS is alive and well!

Whether you believe that RSS is dead or not, you’ll find the familiar orange icon adorning lots of information resources in the Evans Library.

If you’ve used RSS before, you know that it’s a fantastic tool for delivering updates directly to your feed reader of choice. If you haven’t used RSS, why not give it a try? To get started, all you need is a feed reader and a feed!

Both Google and Yahoo offer free, easy to use readers – just download, create an account if you don’t already have one, and start using them.

You’ll find RSS feeds for many of the Library’s databases, Summon, the Research Guides, and, of course, our blog. Look for the RSS icon (it’s usually orange, but not always) and click to create an automatic feed that updates in your reader whenever new content is added.
