Set up an RSS feed to get news updates via email
What is RSS?
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an XML-based format for syndicating content. Simply put, it allows you to subscribe to content on dozens of websites and have it delivered directly to you in one place, via your RSS feed reader.
How do I receive RSS feeds?
RSS feeds via your Browser
Most modern web browsers have RSS support built in, including Internet Explorer v7+, Firefox, Opera and Safari. Generally, by clicking on the RSS icon of the feed you require, a window will appear asking you to 'subscribe'. By clicking on this link future feeds will appear in your Favourites or Bookmark Toolbar.
Refer to your browser for further instructions on how to subscribe to a feed.
RSS feeds via your E-mail
Add an RSS Feed through Microsoft Outlook:
- First copy the URL of the RSS Feed you require.
Tip: In most web browsers, on a web page, you can right-click the RSS icon and then copy the shortcut or copy link location to the clipboard.
- In Outlook 2007: On the Tools menu, click 'Account Settings'. On the RSS Feeds tab, click 'New'
- In Outlook 2010: Click the File tab. On the RSS Feeds tab, click 'New'
- In Outlook 2013/2016: Right-click the RSS Feeds folder (Outlook 2013) or the RSS Subscriptions folder (Outlook 2016) and select Add a New RSS Feed
- In the New RSS Feed dialog box, type or press CTRL+V to paste the URL of the RSS Feed from the clipboard into the 'RSS Feed location box'.
For example, https://www.lib.latrobe.edu.au/rss/new-titles/planning.xml
