How do I access RSS?

You read these files in a program called an RSS aggregator (also sometimes called an RSS reader), which collects news from various websites and provides it to you in a simple human-readable form. There are two common types of RSS aggregators, client based and Web-based. A client based RSS aggregator is a piece of software that you install on your computer. There are many different client based aggregators to chose from. If you already use the Mozilla Thunderbird for e-mail, you can also use it for RSS. Thunderbird, besides being an excellent e-mail client is also a very good RSS reader. One advantage of Thunderbird is that most people check their e-mail regularly and they will be able to see any new items in RSS at the same time and will not have to open up a separate program or web site. See RSS Basics for Thunderbird for more information about how to use Thunderbird to access RSS feeds. If you prefer a stand-alone RSS aggregator there are many to choose from. Some popular ones include Omea ReaderRSS BanditFeedReader, and Newsgator.

Many people prefer to use web-based aggregators that are offered for free on the Internet. My Yahoo!Bloglines, and Newsgator are popular services that can aggregate RSS feeds. One of the advantages of the web-based services is that you can get to them from anywhere you can open a web browser.

To view one of the TCNJ Library feeds in your RSS Aggregator:

  1. Copy the URL/shortcut that corresponds to the RSS feed that interests you.
  2. Paste the URL into your reader.
