By offering our news stories in syndication via RSS (Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication), those using news aggregation programs will receive the latest headlines as soon as they are posted to www.umbc.edu .
For those new to news readers, they are software programs that retrieve stories and information posted on Web sites. The news is formatted in RSS, which is a form of eXtensible markup language (XML).
Instead of hunting for stories from Web site to Web site through a browser, a news reader program automatically fetches headlines and news updates for you. News reader programs are available in both free and fee-based versions on the Internet.
Newsgator and Bloglines are free news readers that are easy to set up.
