Get a Newsfeed of Library Headlines
This website has several "feeds", which allow you to automatically receive links to news and events as they're posted on the site. Using feeds is a convenient way to keep up with as many blogs, news sites, and other websites as you like. For a quick tutorial about feeds and how they work, see Common Craft's RSS in Plain English video.
Feeds are marked with a special icon , which you click to "subscribe" to the feed by adding it to whichever program you use as a feed reader (see below).
Feeds on this site include:
There are a number of tools available for subscribing to and reading feeds. Here are a few examples:
- Online feed readers, such as Google Reader or Bloglines.
- Software, such as NewsGator, that you download and install on your computer.
- Widgets for your own web space or portal, such as on MySpace, Google, or My Yahoo.
- The toolbars on some web browsers, like Internet Explorer 7 or Firefox.
- RSS feed support in some email programs, like Outlook 2007.
Each tool has its own specific instructions for adding feeds, but the process is usually as simple as pasting in the feed's address or selecting from a menu.
