Have headlines delivered the way you want them  

Nov 18, 2008  

As a service to the Ohio University community and friends, Outlook offers a Web feed in three formats -- RSS 2.0, Atom 1.0 and simple syndication.

An acronym for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary, RSS is a group of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works -- such as blog entries and news headlines -- in a standardized format.

Web feeds can be viewed using software called an "RSS reader," "feed reader" or "aggregator," which can be installed on your computer to bring news updates to your desktop. Readers also can be Web-based, compiling the content into a single Web page for ease of access.

Once a reader has been activated, copy and paste the appropriate link to incorporate the Outlook feed in your desired format:

  • Atom 1.0 -- http://www.ohio.edu/outlook/index.cfm?xml=Outlook,Atom1.0

  • RSS 2.0 -- http://www.ohio.edu/outlook/index.cfm?xml=outlook,RSS2.0

  • Simple syndication -- http://www.ohio.edu/outlook/index.cfm?xml=Outlook,simple

For more information on RSS, take a look at the related links below (please note, all of these links take you outside Ohio University's Web site).
