Using the RSS reader will enable you to obtain new information from the field of Slovak culture as soon as it appears online. The RSS technology combines news from several selected channels (i.e. from the Slovakiana portal, the blog section thereof, selected institutions and web-portals) and converts them into short messages (so called RSS feeds). These can be viewed through the specialized program of the RSS reader, with the aid of a plug-in into a different program, or via a web-application developed for this purpose. These applications monitor any changes on selected web-portals and when a new contribution appears on the server, this fact is displayed as a new article in the RSS channel. You therefore do not have to visit your favorite channels on a daily basis to find out whether a new message has been added to them. Thanks to the RSS reader, you will obtain the information about any new message, all in one place and as soon as it appears online.
