What is RSS?
RSS, which stands for "Really Simple Syndication" or "Rich Site Summary" (depending on whom you ask), is an XML-based format for distributing and aggregating Web content. Using RSS, Web content providers can easily create and disseminate data feeds, including news links, headlines, calendar items and summaries.

RSS feeds allow you to get news and information from multiple websites in one place using an aggregator (also called a feed reader or news reader). If you are new to RSS, a good easy-to-use free reader to try is Bloglines. Just get an account, then add the Libraries' feed by adding /news.xml to your Bloglines account. (Click on Add, paste in this URL, and click on Subscribe.)
