Reference Desk RSS Feeds
What is RSS?
RSS allows for real time update to your favorite web content via RSS Readers. Any website providing RSS content can be included in your RSS Reader to create a single access point for all of your favorite web content. RSS Readers allow you to view RSS feeds as standard content and alert you of any updates. RSS Readers can be downloaded as standalone applications directly to your desktop. Others plug directly into your browser or e-mail software. Portals like My Yahoo act as RSS Readers and allow you to add RSS content directly to your My Yahoo page.

The Village of Streamwood now offers RSS feeds for the following:

  • Press Releases
  • Special Events
  • Agendas/Minutes
  • Employment Opportunities

If you use a portal such as My Yahoo, Google, Newsgator, etc., you can just click on that link below and follow the directions to add the content to your page. 

If you use a standalone RSS Reader, click on the orange XML button to copy/paste the XML link. A new page will open that contains the .xml code.  Just copy/paste the url from your browser's address line.  If you do not link to a new page, right click on the orange button and select "Copy Shortcut" to add the URL to your RSS Reader.
