About RSS:

RSS is a simple and popular way to keep informed of news and events from an organizaiton. Organizations publish new information to an RSS file which, is updated immediately on the internet. If you have feed reader software that is subscribed to the RSS feed, it continually checks the file for new information. This new info is automatically delivered to your computer when it is available.

RSS Software:

Most new internet browsers have RSS subscription capabilities built into them (Internet Explorer 7, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari). These typically add the new news information to the bookmarks or favorites list as a new link. Most Email clients also have it built in. They allow you to read the new information as a new email (Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird). Information on how to use these features can be found on their respective websites or their help menus. Seperate, standalone RSS reader software is also available.
