RSS Feeds about what the Government is doing


- Advertisment -

RSS feeds are available for many govinfo collections and generally include the 100 most recent documents published. Feeds are also available for bulk data, which can be used with GPO’s bulk data repository to download XML data sets in bulk.

RSS feeds are commonly used on blogs (weblogs), news websites, and other places with frequently updated content. RSS is an easy way to keep up with news and information that’s important to you. By subscribing to an RSS feed, you can have content delivered directly to you without receiving an email.

RSS feeds, (which have the extension “.xml”, “.rss”, “.sfm”, “.cfm”, “.rdf”, “.aspx”, or “.php”), require installation and use of RSS aggregator software. An RSS aggregator allows you to subscribe to an RSS feed. There are many aggregators available; some are free and some are available for sale.

An RSS aggregator gathers material from websites that you tell it to scan, and it brings new information from those sites to you. It’s a convenient format because it allows you to view all the new content from multiple sources in one location on your desktop or mobile device.

If you have comments or suggestions on how we can improve our RSS feeds, please see our Github repository.

  1. The civil servants who are responsible for creating deserve some praise for publishing a truly massive amount of information in an accurate, reliable, and developer-friendly way. (I know them. They are hard-working people!) Also worth noting that these things don't just happen on their own. Dozens of advocates outside of the government (myself included) have advocated for these sorts of things to come about for decades, and they're always in danger of disappearing if advocates and other users of the data don't continually demonstrate to decision-makers the importance of it.

  2. Meta-comment: I recently got into RSS so I’m pretty biased but I love the format and it seems like there’s a bit of a RSS renaissance going on with a bunch of recent articles promoting it and people sharing their experiences etc. Is that just wishful thinking on my part?
