Keeping up will all of the new (such as blogs & Twitter) along with the old (such as search results and news items) information resources can be difficult these days. However, with RSS you can receive feeds of new material from many different locations into one easy-to-use Web site or program. In this NCompass Live session, our Technology Innovation Librarian, Michael Sauers, will give an overview of why and how you can use RSS to receive timely information with a minimum of effort.

  • What is an Aggregator?
    An aggregator (or news aggregator) is a type of software that retrieves syndicated Web content that is supplied in the form of a web feed (RSS, Atom and other XML formats), and that are published by weblogs, podcasts, vlogs, and mainstream mass media websites.-Wikipedia
    It’s what you need to retrieve and read RSS feeds.
  • 26. Why do I need an aggregator?
    Well, if you don’t use an aggregator RSS files will look like this…
  • 27. RSS file in IE8
  • 28. Atom file in IE8
  • 29. RSS file in Firefox 3
  • 30. RSS file in Chrome
  • 31. Why do I need an aggregator?
    Most importantly it makes the content of the feed readable
    Gathers the content of multiple feeds in a single location
    Checks for updates automatically
    Notifies you of new information
    Displays only new items for you
    May allow you to sort and save information
