Please Deliver: Using RSS Feeds to Bring Information to Your Desktop
Thursday, Feb. 14

Are you curious about blogs? Have you noticed the orange RSS symbol on the BU Law website or on the library’s news page and wondered what it means?  Are you regularly visiting blogs for law school or personal interests?  If you said yes to any of these questions, this workshop is for you!

Participants in this workshop will:

  • Learn about blogs: why use them, how to find them, and more.
  • Know how to use the feed readers built into Internet Explorer and Firefox
  • Become familiar with Yahoo & Google features for reading blogs
  • Have a basic knowledge of the advantages of standalone feed readers over those in IE, Firefox, Google, and Yahoo
