Three Ways You Can Follow ACRL-OR Updates

ACRL-Oregon has revamped our online presence, with a new blog liaison model and regular postings of news and updates on the blog homepage of our site, https://acrloregon.org/.

Interested in hearing more about ACRL-Oregon events and news, but don’t have time to keep checking in on the blog? Here are three easy ways you can sign up for automated updates from the ACRL-Oregon blog:

1. RSS:

Direct your browser to https://acrloregon.org/feed/ for an RSS feed of blog posts. If you already use an RSS reader, you know what to do! If you aren’t familiar with RSS, check out this simple explanation at whatisrss.com for details and how to use it. (This page at http://alternativeto.net/software/google-reader/ also includes info about and links to RSS alternatives to Google Reader.)

2. Smart Bookmarks:

If you’re a Firefox user, you’ll see a prompt to add the feed as a smart bookmark — which updates automatically with each new post — as soon as you click the link to our feed. Chrome doesn’t support this natively, but you can add the excellent raindrop.io extension to do exactly the same thing.

3. Follow via Email:

On the top right column of the ACRL-Oregon blog and homepage under the “Follow Blog via Email” heading, click the Follow button and enter your e-mail address. Our system will send you an e-mail every time we publish a new post!
