What is an RSS feed?
If you hate missing out on the latest news from The EMS Museum, RSS feeds may be the answer.
Using very simple, easy-to-use, free or low-cost software called an RSS reader, you can have all the latest headlines on topics you choose delivered to your desktop for free. When your reader displays a headline of interest, click the headline and you'll be whisked to The EMS Museum for the full story. This way you can see all the recent updates and additions in a matter of seconds.
You can even choose to get "aggregrated" feeds on a particular topic, in which headlines are delivered to you from a variety of sources. RSS makes keeping up with the information that matters to you easy. When browsing The EMS Museum, look for the RSS icon. Click on the orange icon and you'll be taken to our RSS feeds.
