RSS, which stands for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication, can be used to view recent updates from multiple sources in a single location. An RSS feed can be created through new results from a database search (including searches on PubMed), and other publisher and news websites often offer RSS feeds to view updates to their content.
An RSS reader allows you to organize and read updates from multiple RSS feeds.
Library staff can assist you with setting up RSS feeds based on searches from PubMed and
viewing these feeds through the RSS reader tool on Microsoft Outlook
(Note: RSS feeds are not currently supported on Outlook for Macs). Contact Library staff by phone, email, or in person to request assistance with RSS feeds.
The Daily Science News Service is an email service to help NCI at Frederick employees stay current with science and medical news. Library staff maintains a list of email addresses of interested

The topics are wide-ranging and come from a variety of sources. Learn how to sign up for Daily Science News.
