Visitors to the AU website can now get automatic news updates through RSS (really simple syndication) feeds. Users can track the latest news about their major or favorite AU sport or see upcoming calendar events by subscribing to RSS feeds.

"This technology makes it easy for anyone to keep track of what's going on at AU according what interests them most," said David Hynds, Web Content Specialist.

"Current students can get updates from the calendar about events on campus, alumni can get alumni-related news, parents of athletes can follow stories for their child's sport, and current and prospective students can track stories related to their area of study. The possibilities are endless."

RSS feeds function similar to an online, constantly-updated newspaper. Users subscribe to various AU news categories through feed readers like Bloglines or Google Reader. When fresh news stories are created, they are automatically published to the RSS feeds, allowing users to see stories instantaneously.
