RSS Catalog Feeds
What are RSS feeds?
RSS feeds are a way for Howard County Library System (HCLS) to alert you about additions to the catalog for topics of special interest to you. Once set up, information is delivered directly to you, an added convenience to your search for titles online or on the shelves.
RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary. RSS feeds are written in XML and require a feed reader.
How can I read the feeds?
You can use a web-based reader or download one to your computer.
Follow the instructions in your reader to subscribe to the feeds of your choice.
