Save Time with a Feed Reader

An RSS feed reader will save you time as you strive to keep up with current events and publications.

R S SRSS (Really Simple Syndication) allows you to "subscribe" to online content (such as websites, blogs, and news and business publications) via a feed reader.

Many different feed readers are available, including readers that are part of your browser or email client, as well as readers that may be used with any browser or mobile device.

Feed Reader Tips:

  • Set up feeds for an entire website, as well as distinct pages or sections. For instance, you can "subscribe" to the homepage of The New York Times as well as the business section.
  • Some research databases also allow you to "subscribe" to a specific set of search terms, so if you're doing research over a period of time, you can be "alerted" to new articles that fit your criteria.
  • If you hit a "paywall" (the website asks you to pay for the full text) when trying to read an article brought to you by your feed reader, look up the publication via the Journal Locator to read the article for free!
