RSS feed for LAC

Library and Archives Canada have just made it easier for us to keep up with what's happening there without having to visit the LAC website.

Their new RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed provides links to news on new content on the LAC website as well as updates to existing pages. Additions, such as new finding aids and new descriptions in databases are also highlighted.

Mostly these are items that will also be highlighted on the LAC front page, and many are mentioned in this blog.

If you don't use RSS you're missing a great convenience. It may seem a bit confusing at first, but LAC has a guide, including how to find a RSS reader, here.
