What is RSS?

RSS, short for Really Simple Syndication, is a data format that provides publishers with a way of distributing content. Subscribe to a feed and Acton Institute updates will be automatically collected by the reader of your choice. You choose which feeds you would like to display by adding them to your reader/service (see below for further details).

To view an RSS feed, you will need access to a reader (or aggregator) that allows the collection and display of RSS content. RSS readers can be installed as standalone applications on your computer; alternatively, feeds can be collected and accessed thru a web-based service Google Reader. Many readers are available free of charge.
