JMU uses RSS feeds to publish frequently updated content (JMU news, athletics, or other articles). You might be familiar with RSS if you've ever subscribed to someone's blog or personalized an iGoogle page.
An RSS document - called a "feed," "web feed," or "channel," - contains either a summary of content from a specific site or the full text. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites in an automated manner that's easier than checking them manually.
RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." By subscribing to JMU's RSS feeds, you can be informed when content on our site is updated, or syndicate JMU content in your blog. (More information on RSS from FeedBurner.)
If a site offers an RSS feed, it will display the RSS Icon in the address bar (the icon on Safari is ).
Follow your Web Browser's instructions to add any of these feeds to your subscriptions:
You can also subscribe to an RSS feed directley in your JMU Portal page; here's how.
