Subscribe to the Law Library's Contests

by Sarah Prosory 21. February 2011 09:00

Did you know you can subscribe to just the Contest posts from the Law Library's blog? (Though, don't you want to read everything we write here?) Cool

Here's how:

1. In the Category List on the right-hand side menu, click on the orange RSS button next to the word "Contest" (be sure to click the RSS button and not the link, otherwise you view all the posts we've done for Contests up to now).

2. Copy the URL for the RSS feed.

3. Paste the URL into the RSS Reader of your choice. Google Reader is a good one. Did you know you have an RSS reader in Microsoft Outlook?

Now each time we have a contest, such as Library Loot, you'll get notifed through your RSS feed! Be sure to check out our other posts about RSS and blogs here and here.

You can follow this procedure for any of the other categories listed in the Category List. For example, if you're just interested in Alumni information then you can just subscribe to that feed.

Another Library Loot puzzle will be posted tomorrow, so get ready!

Questions? I'd be happy to help! Email me!
