What is RSS?

RSS is one  of the feed formats that help to keep you updated on latest content from your favourite websites using an XML format.  Instead of having to revisit a website to see if it has fresh content, you can view an aggregation of latest headlines via a feed reader which collects news from your selected websites. 

What Do I Need to Do?

You will need to download a program called an aggregator. This provides a user-friendly interface to read the RSS information feeds from your favourite websites on your computer. You can also subscribe to new RSS feeds or manage your existing feeds via the reader.

How Do I Get a Feed Reader?

There is a range of feed readers available online. Different readers work on different operating systems, so please take this into account when you choose one, and follow the instructions.
