What is RSS?
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a lightweight XML format designed for sharing headlines and other web content. RSS allows users to subscribe to their favorite websites. A program known as a feed reader or aggregator can check a list of feeds on behalf of a user and display any updated articles that it finds.

How do I subscribe?
First, you need to install software that will alert you anytime there is an update to one of your favorite sites. If you are using Mozilla Thunderbird as an email client you may also use it to read RSS feeds. If you are not using Mozilla's Thunderbird email client, you will need to choose one of the news readers from the list below. Once you download and install a newsreader, simply copy and paste the URL of a news feed (http://www.osc.edu/press/feed.xml) into your newsreader's "subscribe" dialogue box.
