Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an XML-based format which can be accessed with "news reader" applications, embedded in blogs, and used in other ways.
Click on the RSS icon on any Stanford web page to access the RSS feed. We currently offer feeds for events, news, and sports directly from the Stanford homepage. Many other websites at Stanford offer feeds of their content as well.
There are a number of ways to access RSS feeds. You can install a news reader to manage RSS feeds, enabling you to view headlines from hundreds of different sources. After installing the news reader, you can add each feed by clicking on the feed icon. Some sites may designate RSS feeds with alternative icons that read "RSS", "XML", or "Subscribe."
