Subscribing to RSS Feeds

To subscribe to RSS feeds you will need to select a reader, or aggregator. Below are several options for subscribing to and viewing RSS feed content.

Adding a feed in Firefox

While in Firefox, find the RSS feed you want and click on the icon.

Select the feed reader you would like to use (Firefox Live Bookmarks, Bloglines, Yahoo, or Google Reader) and click "Subscribe Now."

Adding a feed to other Web browsers


Adding a feed in Web-based RSS readers

There are many Web-based RSS feed readers available. Once you’ve chosen a Web-based reader, follow their directions for adding feeds. Many of these services also offer toolbar add-ons that allow for easy RSS subscription.

Adding a feed to your RSS reader/aggregator

To do this you must first choose an RSS reader, often known as an RSS aggregator. Wikipedia and the Open Directory Project both maintain comprehensive lists.

Once you choose a reader, download and install it and follow the appropriate directions on how to add a feed. These directions usually instruct you to copy the feed URL and paste it into a prompt in the feed reader.

Adding a feed to your Web portal

If you are already using a Web portal — such as Netvibes, iGoogle, or My Yahoo! — you may add RSS feeds to your personalized home page. Each Web portal has a slightly different process, so check your portal’s help section for instructions.

Adding a feed to your Outlook mail client

First, get the Web address of the feed by going to the Web page and clicking on the RSS icon. For example, Public Offering will take you to a page titled “Columbia Business School: Public Offering RSS Feed.” Copy this URL. (If you are using Firefox or another browser that automatically puts the feed in your bookmarks, you may have to get the feed URL using a different browser).

Once you have copied the URL, go to Outlook. Follow these steps:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Account Settings.
  2. On the RSS Feeds tab, click New.
  3. In the New RSS Feed dialog box, type or press CTRL+V to paste the URL of the RSS Feed. For example, http://www.example.com/feed/main.xml.
  4. Click Add.
  5. Click OK.
