What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an easy way to get the news you want whenever it is updated. MSU provides a regularly updated MSU News feeds, as well as other popular RSS feeds, and delivers them directly to your desktop RSS reader. 

What are the benefits of using RSS?
RSS is an easy way for you to be alerted when content that interests you appears on your favorite Web sites. Instead of visiting a particular Web site to browse for new articles and features, RSS automatically tells you when something new is posted online.

Click on an XML or RSS icon on the MSU or your other favorite sites to get the RSS URL, which you will see in the "Address" field of of your browser. Just copy this URL and follow the instructions for your particular news reader to subscribe.

How can I use RSS?
There are several ways to access RSS feeds. You can install a news reader that displays RSS feeds from the Web sites you select. Like an e-mail program or a Web browser, the RSS reader serves as a kind of information portal, and provides a real-time interface to the feeds you select. Once the RSS reader is set up to access MSU headlines, it will continually poll the MSU RSS feeds for the latest headlines. A number of free and commercial RSS readers are available for download. Popular RSS readers include My Yahoo! or Google (Web-based); Sharp Reader, Newsgator, Feed Demon and Bloglines (desktop-based).

After installing the news reader, you can add each feed manually from the Web site by clicking on the "XML" orange button next to the feed you choose.
