RSS News Feeds

What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML standard for distributing content on the Web. We use RSS to alert you to updates of software, databases and publications.

RSS feeds mean that you can automatically receive updates of new content without having to check our web site manually. Our RSS feeds are in RSS 2.0 format. To use this you must have a compatible RSS reader.

RSS Readers gather information from different sources and display them to you in a single interface. These can be standalone desktop programs, or may be web-based and accessible via your web browser. A list of standalone and web-based readers is available on the RSS Specifications web site.

Web-based RSS Readers

Modern versions of Firefox will show you the RSS feed and give you the option to add the feed to various web-based RSS Readers, just by clicking the link to our RSS feed.

Alternatively, you can just click one of the icons below to add our RSS feed if you have an account on these systems. It is generally a good idea to log in to your account first!
