A Guide to Automatic Updates from HSR&D
RSS, short for Really Simple Syndication, is a "feed" used to alert readers to new content. For the HSR&D website, the content in the RSS feeds links to recently updated citations from our researchers and centers, delivered directly to your computer.
RSS content must be read using software called an "RSS reader," "feed reader" or an "aggregator," which can be web-based or desktop-based. HSR&D users can subscribe to our feeds either by clicking on the RSS icon for a particular topic, or by entering the feed's link into the selected reader. The RSS reader downloads any website updates that it finds so you can check your reader any time to look for new HSR&D content.
A list of RSS feed readers is available on Wikipedia. Each reader works slightly differently, but the result is the same. And if you use a Google or other web browser homepage, you can choose to have it display our feeds. You will be kept up to date on the latest news and information on the HSR&D website.
