||RSS (Really Simple Syndication):
- Why Should You Subscribe to NRCOI's RSS Feeds?
NRCOI's RSS subscriptions enable you to get news from NRCOI delivered directly to your desktop! It's an alternative to e-mail that offers many conveniences. RSS subscriptions give you one place from where you can scan headlines and summaries to read what interests you. Your RSS news reader automatically delivers content to you in an organized manner as new or updated information becomes available on the NRCOI Web site.
What is RSS?
RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it's not just for news. Virtually anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS, for example, the "recent changes" page of a wiki, a changelog of CVS checkins, even the revision history of a book. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.
RSS-aware programs called news readers or news aggregators are popular in the weblogging community. Many weblogs make content available in RSS. A news reader can help you keep up with all your favorite weblogs by checking their RSS feeds and displaying new items from each of them.
How to subscribe to NRCOI's RSS feeds?
To view an NRCOI feed in your RSS news reader
There are a number of other ways to access RSS feeds. You can install a news reader that displays RSS feeds from the Web sites you select, enabling you to view hundreds of headlines at once. After installing the news reader, you can add each feed manually from the Web site by clicking on the feed's URL.
An alternative to downloading a dedicated news reader is to use a Web-based news reader. For example, My Yahoo!, Google Personalized Home, and SOAPClient users can now add RSS feeds directly to their personal page. Or, you can access RSS feeds through online readers such as Bloglines and NewsFire.
With Internet Explorer 7.0 (IE 7) and Mozilla Firefox 2.0 you can subscribe to RSS feeds and get instant access to the content that matters most to you. With the built-in RSS reader, the latest updates from NRCOI can be delivered directly to your browser.
