Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a family of data formats used to publish frequently updated content. RSS lets you keep up-to-date with your favourite websites automatically—easier than checking back every day. All you have to do is follow the instructions below.

To begin, click the orange RSS icon rss icon (at the top of your browser's window, in the address area), or enter the feed’s link into your RSS reader. Your RSS reader will check subscribed feeds regularly and download any new content that it finds. You can also view your RSS feeds using your Blackberry, cell phone, or other Internet-enabled device. RSS readers are included with most web browsers, and free web-based readers can be found at reader.google.com or my.yahoo.com.

Note: A feed is a data format used to provide frequently updated content to those that want up-to-date information sent to them automatically. Please be aware that Internet Explorer version 6 does not support RSS feeds. You will need to update to a newer version if this is your browser of choice.
