RSS Feeds

Receive Duke News Automatically

You can receive automatic RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds of Duke news on any of these topics. The feeds are limited to information distributed through the Duke Today site. For some categories, you may also want to seek additional sources, such as for sports. (A list of Duke email newsletters is available here. A list of Duke flagship publications is available here.) See below for instructions on receiving the newsfeeds.

Receiving the newsfeeds requires using a software program called an RSS reader or aggregator (see below for further explanation).

To select a newsfeed, click on the link to the topic name and copy the feed into your RSS reader. The RSS feed you receive will show headlines, summaries and links back to the ONC site for complete stories.

RSS also enables you to incorporate newsfeeds into your website and blog pages. Please feel free to incorporate headlines, story descriptions and links to the ONC web site, with attribution to the Duke University Office of News & Communications.

About RSS readers

Many RSS readers are available for Windows, the Macintosh, Linux and a variety of handheld devices. Some RSS readers must be installed on the user's computer. Several of the most popular services, such as Feedly and Bloglines run on websites and are accessed through a browser.

RSS is also built into many web browsers and e-mail programs. Apple's Safari, Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 and the free Firefox browser already allow downloading and viewing RSS feeds, which Firefox calls "live bookmarks." The Thunderbird e-mail program also includes an RSS reader.
