TAG | RSS feeds

During the first week back this term, all Year 11 and 12 students were given an overview of useful Web 2.0 tools they can use to help them become organised, and RSS feeds were one of these.


RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, and it refers to the ability to manage the huge quantities of information available on the web by pulling in to your feed reader (or aggregator) only the types of information that you are interested in. It does not work on static web sites though – only those which have constantly updated information. Read more about RSS feeds here.

You can set up RSS feeds on current news items or sport commentaries, book publisher information, new music releases, or other people’s blogs.

See our LibGuides page for extra details about RSS feeds, including how to set up  RSS feeds from one of our databases.
