RSS is a technology that allows you to receive web page updates (or “feeds”) as they happen, without having to go to the web page. Most blogs and news sites are available via RSS, so you can subscribe, get all of your updates in one place, and not have to check each web site a million times a day.
Here’s how to subscribe to the DCTC Library blog using Outlook:
- In Outlook, click on Tools and select Account Settings from the drop down menu.
- Click on the RSS Feeds tab in the window that pops up.
- Click on New.
- Copy and paste https://blogs.dctc.edu/library/feed/ into the box that pops up.
- Click on the Add button.
Your RSS subscriptions will appear under RSS Feeds in your Outlook mail folders, right between Outbox and Sent Items.
Google offers a free, web-based feed reader which you can access from anywhere. See their instructions on how to add feeds and start reading!
