About RSS feeds

Some of you have probably wondered how you can keep up with what is happening on the Web. If you are a person who prefers information and updates to be “pushed” to you rather than going and finding them yourself, RSS feeds are for you. RSS is the most common format of the feeds, which are the data format used for providing users with frequently updated content, such as blog entries or news headlines, in a standardised format. If you subscribe to the RSS feeds from a site or a blog, e.g. this blog, you will receive a notification in your ‘feed reader’ every time when this web resource is updated. You can see a yellow RSS icon at this bolg’s page under the picture of the Law Library. If you would like to know more about RSS feed and how to use them, take a look at this video, RSS in Plain English.
