RSS Library News Service
Since August 2004, WIU Libraries has offered RSS (Really Simple Syndication) news feeds to help users stay current with important library news and information. A popular web technology based on the XML format, RSS feeds provide timely updates by sites such as Yahoo!, MSNBC and other leading information providers.
To access these RSS services, you will need a special news reader. A number of free web portal services (e.g., My Yahoo!, My Netscape, Bloglines, Google Reader), and free downloadable news readers are available (e.g., Sage & NewzCrawler). In addition many of the latest web browsers have news readers built right into them.
To subscribe, click the RSS button or the link and follow the instructions for your particular news reader.
