Headline News Feeds
What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for sharing and distributing Web content, such as news headlines. Using a Web browser or RSS reader, you can view data feeds from various news sources, such as medschool.umaryland.edu, and display that data on your desktop. The headlines displayed by an RSS reader will usually link to the complete story.
How do I Access RSS Feeds?
RSS Readers/News Aggregators:
Most browsers will display an RSS feed automatically. RSS readers (also called News Aggregators) will download and display RSS feeds for you. Many aggregators are separate, stand-alone programs; other services will let you add RSS feeds to a Web page. A number of free and commercial RSS readers are available for download, including Google Reader.
