Have you ever wanted a way to keep up with AAPG's headlines about meetings, abstract deadlines, news or science without having to wade through two dozen Web pages and at least as many e-mails?
Enter a new AAPG offering: RSS (Really Simple Syndication).
Think of RSS as newsfeeds, but without the hassle and zero expense; it is a headline and text excerpt of an online document with a hyperlink to the full content.
Subscribing to RSS feeds is free, and once you have a bunch of these feeds you'll find it is easier and quicker to keep up with the sites you like. And unlike unsubscribing to those pesky e-mails, RSS allows you to simply delete what you no longer like. It is completely yours to control at all times.
Testing out RSS is a simple matter of downloading an RSS reader (if you have a recent version of the Firefox browser you are good to go). Then visit the AAPG's RSS Web site at http://rss.aapg.org/ (notice there is no "www").
We currently have RSS feeds for the AAPG BULLETIN and Search and Discovery, and we'll be adding more soon.
