RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as news releases, blog entries, and other dynamic information.
RSS makes it possible for you to keep up with OIC website updates in an automated manner that can be read using an RSS Reader. Once you have an RSS Reader, click on the appropriate RSS link, copy the URL and paste it into your RSS Reader or click an RSS icon to initiate the automated subscription process. Simply subscribe to one of the feeds below, and your reader will automatically retrieve updates from the OIC as they are posted.
