About RSS feeds

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds notify subscribers when specific content on a site is published or updated. It is an easy and free way to receive updates on the Plants for Human Health Institute’s research news and Extension outreach efforts in North Carolina. You choose the sections of the website you want to follow and then receive notifications whenever new information is published in those areas.

How does it work?

To use RSS, you’ll need to use a news reader – a program that collects the updates from the feeds you select in real time. News readers come in different varieties, but there are plenty of free readers from which to choose. Two good examples are Google Reader and Bloglines. The Plants for Human Health Institute’s RSS feeds should work with any standard reader.

Lets get started

Pick one or more of the feeds below. If you want updates from all of the individual sections (such as Institute News), choose the Main Site Feed rather than subscribing to each feed individually. As you choose the feed(s) you want, you will be directed to a page where you can pick the reader with which you wish to subscribe. Select the reader that you are using and you are good to go!

Your email service should offer you help in changing settings or unsubscribing from an RSS feed. Information on how to do this with Outlook 2007 is available here.
