Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an XML-based format for content distribution. QConline offers several RSS feeds for use with news readers and blogs. These feeds include headlines, summaries and links back to QCOnline for the full article.

There are a number of ways to access RSS feeds. You can install a news reader that displays RSS feeds from the Web sites you select, enabling you to view hundreds of headlines at once. After installing the news reader, you can add each feed manually from the Web site by clicking on the "Subscribe" or the "XML" orange button next to the feed.

An alternative to downloading a dedicated news reader is to use a Web-based news reader. For example, My Yahoo! or My AOL users can now add RSS feeds directly to their personal page.
