You can either use your computer web browser, a dedicated feed reader, or an app for mobile devices. If you Subscribe to a feed, updates will be pushed to you and you will be able to skim them quickly.

 

Browser support

 In most browsers you can either click the link to a feed and read it in the browser, or Subscribe.

As of August 2015, Chrome needs an RSS feed extension installed to View feed: Search for Chrome feeds extensions  

Internet Explorer (Feeds), Safari 8+ (Shared Links), and Firefox (Live Bookmarks), include RSS support by default. They can display the feed in the browser window, and also include built-in RSS readers that may automatically detect the presence of RSS feed information and prompt you to subscribe. Alternatively, you can install an RSS plug-in or use an online feed reader. Mac users with an earlier version of Safari should use Firefox or a dedicated reader.

 

Mobile devices

Subscribe via apps such as Feedly (for Android OS) or RSS Reader by wegenerlabs (for  IOS )


Note for Mac devices: With some apps for Mac devices,  an online account with a reader app is required. With those apps it can be easier to set up your account and manage your feed subscriptions on a computer/laptop first.  RSS Reader by wegenerlabs doesn't require an online account, and is a simple solution for IOS users. To subscribe using RSS Reader:

 

  1. In your device browser, tap and hold the View Feed link to which you want to subscribe, and Copy.
  2. In RSS Reader, click Add feed and Paste the Feed URL

 

Feed readers

A feed reader is the tool that is used to read  and/or notify you of newly available information from sites where you've subscribed. Apart from default browser support for RSS, there are a number of  readers available depending on your operating system, and many are free. Many  are applications that you download  and install. Others are web-based services you sign-up for, and work inside your browser.

To get our feeds, simply  right-click (Windows) or option-click (Mac) on the link provided  and copy it to your clipboard. Then, open your reader and paste in the  URL. After setting up your newsreader, you will be ready to use our  RSS feeds - Library news , or New Titles. Follow the instructions for your particular feed reader to  subscribe to our feeds.
