UCP launches RSS feeds
UCP now offers free RSS feeds to help keep you up to date with the latest university news from the UCP website.
What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds provide news headlines, brief article descriptions and links in an xml file that is automatically updated whenever those headlines change. This allows you to receive notification of new content in your own environment - in your browser, on your desktop, in your blog, in your club's website or elsewhere.
How do I use an RSS feed?
1. Via a News Reader
There are many news readers available on the web. Some can be downloaded for free, or on a free trial, while others which offer more features or customization charge. It is worth noting that some readers will work better on different operating systems. A tip is to start with a web-based application and work from there. See the links at the bottom of the page for a number of options.2. Via a web browser
A number of web browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, automatically pick up RSS feeds. Check their homepages for details. This facility is not currently available in Internet Explorer.
