Instead of going to many different resources all the time, you can have information delivered directly to you. Depending on the type of resource, this information will come to your e-mail or to a simple type of tool called an RSS reader. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. Most people use RSS by collecting RSS feeds for Web-based information they are interested in and storing them in a news reader/aggregator.

Once you have decided which to use, you can subscribe to RSS feeds from journals, news sites, or blogs that you check regularly that use the technology. When you "subscribe" to a feed, your newsreader will file that information away and notify you when new content has been posted on the journal, news site, or blog.
Different newsreaders have different "looks" and "feels," in everything from their interface to how they let you know about new content arriving. Take a few minutes to try out some different readers before settling on one to use.
