I am very excited to write my first Tech Talk Tip for Off The Shelf. Off The Shelf has a new look and new location. Therefore, I have been asked to write about RSS feeds so all of our readers can keep current with all the library news.
Feeds, also known as RSS feeds, XML feeds, syndicated content, or web feeds, contain frequently updated content published by a website. They are usually used for news and blog websites, but are also used for distributing other types of digital content, including pictures, audio files, or video.
If you are viewing this article using Windows Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or another major web browser, look for the orange square with the white radio waves in the top part of your toolbar. I am using Windows Internet Explorer in my example.
You will now be prompted to make any changes you would like to the name of the feed, or where it is created on your computer. Normally, I think it will be just fine using the defaults provided by your browser. However, some of our readers may have already created an RSS feed in the past for Off the Shelf at the old location. If that is the case, you may need to change the feed name or delete out the old Off the Shelf entry. So now we click “Subscribe”!
Now that you have added Off The Shelf to your RSS favorites, try adding Bird’s Eye View to make sure you are not missing any library news.
