What is RSS?

You may have been seeing those little orange buttons around the Internet. If you were wondering what they are...

"RSS" means "Really Simple Syndication." What it means to you is that when you subscribe once to a website that has an RSS feed, you can keep up-to-date without having to check or visit the website every day, week or month.

It's "the next big thing" -- you can use it to get newsfeeds from various news outlets and website such as CNN, NPR, The Chronicle of Higher Education, as well as just about anything else, including news and information from anywhere in the world.

Once you get started, it's like having your favorite parts of the Web come to you. No need to go out and check for updates all the time.

How do you get started? Easy!

You can either:

A) Download and install a free RSS Reader first. This is special software that reads the RSS feeds...

Once you've installed the software and are all set up, here's all you have to do...
