What is RSS?
RSS -- Really Simple Syndication.
If you are doing research on a particular subject, you will want to see the new items (books, government documents, videos, etc.) on your topic as soon as the library gets them. If you set up an RSS feed, you can do just that.
First you need an RSS reader. Internet Explorer 7 or the current Firefox support RSS feeds. There are many others you can use.
Do your search in the catalog. When the results list is on the screen, select the RSS icon.
Select "Subscribe to this Feed".
Now, every time the catalog is updated, you will see any new items that match your search.
