What is RSS?

RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format used to syndicate content and allows for the delivery of content to a user's desktop or mobile device via a newsreader, news aggregator, ticker or other RSS software. Most feeds are free from websites, including the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa website, and contain story headlines, summaries and links back to the full-text of stories.

What tools do I need to use RSS?

To start using RSS, you need a special news reader or aggregator that displays RSS content feeds from websites you select. There are many different news readers available, many of which are free of charge. Most are available as software that you download and install on your computer or mobile device. Several web-based news readers are available as well.

Once you have set up your news reader, simply follow the instructions for your particular news reader to subscribe to the RSS content feeds you want. Universidade NOVA de Lisboa does not warranty or recommend any specific software. Users should review and select software that best fits their system and preferences.
