New and Improved…CIA.gov RSS Feeds

Do you visit CIA.gov regularly? Are you interested in our latest updates, from featured stories to press releases? If you answered yes, and even if you answered no, you may be interested in our new, improved RSS feeds.

Complementing the launch of the website’s new design on 24 June, these comprehensive new feeds make it simple for you to know about our content changes the moment they happen:

CIA Newsroom
Subscribe to this feed for updates on official press releases and statements issued by CIA. You’ll also receive transcripts of speeches and testimony from CIA’s leadership through this feed. Consider this your real-time source for official CIA news.

CIA Careers
Be in the know about jobs posted to CIA.gov. We’ll also push out articles on CIA careers to give you an inside look at what it’s like to work here.

CIA Library
This feed will give you the latest facts, figures, research and publications… right at your finger tips. This feed will keep you up to date with new postings to CIA's most popular publications and research tools, including The World Factbook, World Leaders and Studies in Intelligence.

If you were already subscribed to one of our news feeds, you’ll need to re-subscribe to the new RSS feed that best suits your interests. This will ensure you continue to receive the real-time updates you enjoyed previously.

About RSS Feeds

Real Simple Syndication, or RSS, is a tool that downloads and displays news feeds from your favorite websites – all within one screen via an RSS reader. They alert you when new content appears on the websites you have added to your reader. Simply click on the RSS link on the CIA homepage to get a list of our available feeds.

RSS for Internet Explorer and Firefox

Both Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox have built-in RSS readers that allow you to subscribe to the feed. Simply click on the feed link (e.g., CIA Newsroom) and then the “subscribe” or “add feed” button.

Other Browsers

If you are using a browser without a built-in RSS reader, or wish to use a standalone RSS reader, you must download and install your preferred reader before subscribing to a feed. There are a wide range of readers available for your use, and some of them are even free.

Once your reader is installed, you can copy the feed URL that you wish to subscribe to and paste it into that reader. This is usually done by clicking your reader’s “add subscription” or “add feed” button and pasting in the feed URL. Feed URLs will end in “.xml” and they can be copied from any web page. You can simply right click on the RSS link and choose “copy shortcut” or “copy link” location and then paste that information into your chosen reader.

Simply Enjoy Your CIA RSS Feed

Once you have subscribed to one of our feeds, your RSS reader will alert you when we have added new content to our website. This will ensure you’ll be one of the first to know What’s New on CIA.gov.
