Throughout the Supply Managment site you will see links to various RSS feeds, these are usually labelled "such-and-such feed". Clicking on these links allows you to subscribe to the feed and get new content delivered to your feed reader of choice.
What are RSS feeds?
Supply Management RSS feeds allow you to see when we have added new content to our site. You can get the latest content in one place, as soon as it’s published, without having to visit the Supply Management website. Clicking on the headline will take you straight through to the relevant page on our site.
‘RSS’ generally stands for 'Really Simple Syndication'. In essence, the feeds themselves are just web pages, designed to be read by computers rather than people.

How do I start using feeds?
The first thing you need is an RSS reader. This is a small piece of software that checks and updates RSS feeds. There are many different readers, some of which use a browser, and some of which you can download on to your computer.
Browser-based readers such as NetVibes, Bloglines, Newsgator or Feedzilla let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer by storing them online. Downloadable applications, such as NewzCrawler (Windows) or NewsFire (Mac) store your feeds on your computer.
Once you have chosen a reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want it to check. Find a Supply Managment feed you want, for example ‘news-feed', and click on the link. In this case you could find this link on the news page just below the title ‘News’.
Once you have clicked on the RSS feed you want, you can subscribe to the feed in various ways, for example by dragging URL (web address) of the feed into your reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into your reader.
Some browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, automatically check for feeds when you visit a website, and display an icon in the address bar when they find one. This can make subscribing to feeds much easier. For more details on these, please check their websites.
