New Books & RSS Feeds

The Library’s RSS feeds consist of news headlines or new book titles with subject headings, and a link back to our website or Library catalog.

Feeds have been updated to work with WorldCat.

What is RSS?

RSS (Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.

Why Use RSS?

RSS feeds allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually as you view the feed in a method that’s convenient to you such as a Feed Reader or through your browser.
