The New York State Archives has launched a news feed using RSS (Really Simple Syndication) technology. Subscribers will be among the first to find out about Archives events, new records brought into the Archives, press releases, resources for state agencies and local governments, and any major changes to the website – such as new guides to records, new educational sites for teachers and students, and award and grant opportunities. RSS technology enables users to view updates from organizations through an RSS Reader such as an Internet Browser, e-mail, or a third-party reader. RSS Readers provide a brief summary of news updates from an organization and then link to the full article on the organization’s website. Users will be able to stay up-to-date with news from the State Archives once they have subscribed to the RSS feed. To sign up for the RSS feed, go to http://www.archives.nysed.gov/rss/news.xml.
The New York State Archives, a part of the State Education Department, preserves and makes accessible the essential recorded evidence – past and present – of New York’s governments, organizations, peoples, and events.

The State Archives also offers technical assistance, financial support, and other services to local governments and community organizations in every region of the state.
