UKOLN | Cultural Heritage | RSS

This area of the UKOLN web site provide access to RSS feeds for the resources aimed at the cultural heritage sector.

What Is RSS?

RSS is a syndication format which can be used to allow Web content to be embedded in other Web pages or applications. RSS is often used for news and alerts - the term RSS news feeds is often used in this context. However RSS can also be used as a general syndication format.

Making Use Of UKOLN's RSS Feeds

UKOLN is providing access to RSS feeds to provide access to its briefing documents. This may be useful for individuals who wish to manage access to their preferred resources using an RSS reader. In addition cultural heritage organisations may also wish to embed these resources in their own Web sites. This can be done by embedding RSS reading software in your Web pages. Alternatively you could set up a page on a service such as Netvibes.

RSS Feeds

The RSS feeds are intended for adding to an RSS reader. In many modern Web browsers you can select an RSS reader (such as Google Reader) from the browser page when you click on the RSS link.
