ACRL-Oregon has revamped our online presence, with a new blog liaison model
<http://acrloregon.org/2015/01/26/new-blog-liaison-model-for-acrl-oregon/> and
regular postings of news and updates on the blog homepage of our site,

Interested in hearing more about ACRL-Oregon events and news, but don't
have time to keep checking in on the blog? Here are *three easy ways* you
can sign up for automated updates from the ACRL-Oregon blog:
1. RSS:

Direct your browser to http://acrloregon.org/feed/ for an RSS feed of blog
posts. If you already use an RSS reader, you know what to do! If you aren't
familiar with RSS, check out this simple explanation at whatisrss.com
<http://www.whatisrss.com/> for details and how to use it. (This page at
<http://alternativeto.net/software/google-reader/> also includes info about
and links to RSS alternatives to Google Reader.)
2. Smart Bookmarks:

Like the idea of RSS, but don't want to deal with another program to
install and use? If you're a Firefox user, you'll see a prompt to add the
feed as a smart bookmark — which updates automatically with each new post —
as soon as you click the link to our feed. Chrome doesn't support this
natively, but you can add the excellent raindrop.io extension
do exactly the same thing.
3. Follow via Email:

If RSS is still not for you, it's easy to sign up for automatic e-mail
notices from ACRL-Oregon. On the top right column of the ACRL-Oregon blog
and homepage <http://acrloregon.org/> under the "Follow Blog via Email"
heading, click the Follow button and enter your e-mail address. Our system
will send you an e-mail every time we publish a new post!
