RSS Feed for Bournemouth University Library: Research Support Blog

Responding to readers comments ...

You can get regular updates from the Bournemouth University Library: Research Support Blog using RSS (Really Simple Syndication). RSS feeds post updated information from websites to a news aggregator or the RSS reader in your Web Browser (Internet Explorer - IE 7.0 or Mozilla Firefox 2.0).

News Aggregators

Two popular news aggregators are Google Reader and Bloglines. You need to register for an account. If you already have a Google Account add the Reader to your Products. Once you are set up with either Google Reader or Bloglines, click on the RSS symbol on the site you want updates from and follow the instructions. This usually requires you to copy and paste the Internet Address (ULR) of the RSS page into your news aggregator.

Browser RSS Readers

If you are using a web browser ( IE 7.0 or Firefox 2.0 ) that has an RSS reader - and you want to use it - click on the RSS link and you will be offered the option of subscribing to the link. You can then access the RSS Reader in Faviourites of Bookmarks.
