What is RSS?

The acronym RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication (or Rich Site Summary or others depending on who you ask). More importantly, RSS is a web content syndication format - in other words, a process that allows content to be delivered for free to subscribers.

Software programs called RSS readers download RSS feeds that you subscribe to - feeds are presented as a list of headlines and excerpts. Each headline has a link back to the web site it comes from, allowing you to read the entire story.

Why should I subscribe to an RSS feed?

An RSS feed saves you time. Instead of checking a web site to stay on top of the latest news and updates, an RSS feed brings the information directly to you. Most of us get information from multiple sources, so, instead of checking a bunch of different web sites you will get all that information delivered to you.

RSS feeds are very flexible. Depending on your preference and the type of reader and service you use, you can have updates delivered to a personalized web page, your e-mail inbox or even delivered to a mobile device like a cell phone or personal digital assistant.

What does the Commission offer in its RSS feed?

The Commission provides press releases, meeting notifications, reports from biologists and other field staff and legal notices through its RSS feed.

The Commission has one RSS feed:

What do I need to use RSS?

Many popular web portals and software programs (including e-mail) now come ready to use RSS feeds. There are also many RSS readers and compilers available for free download.

There is much more information about RSS and RSS readers available on the web, just type in "RSS" or "RSS reader" in a search engine.
