 +''feed.medlab.host''
 +
 +**What it is**: A manager for RSS and other syndication feeds. Useful for curating news, journal publications, and more.
 +
 +**How it works**: Anyone with a ''my.medlab.host'' account can log in and use it. Here's a basic workflow for creating a feed (say, of journals you want to follow):
 +
 +  * Click the three-horizontal-line "hamburger" menu at the top-right. Choose "Subscribe to feed."
 +  * Find the RSS feed for the journal you want to subscribe to on the journal's website. Usually this will be marked with a logo that looks like [[https://duckduckgo.com/?q=rss+feed&t=ffab&iax=images&ia=images|this]]. If it works correctly, you should see recent articles from that journal appear in Tiny Tiny RSS.
 +  * Go back to the hamburger menu and choose "Preferences," and then click the "Feeds" tab at the top. Under the "Categories" drop-down, choose "Add category," and call it "Journals" or whatever you want.
 +  * Exit preferences, and right/command-click the name of the feed you created on the left sidebar. Place it in the "Journals" category.
 +  * In the left sidebar, click on the category name, "Journals." Now you can see all the articles for all the feeds you add to this category. If you want to read them outside this app, you can add them to any RSS reader (such as Feeder on Android) by clicking the little orange feed icon at the top next to the name "Journals." That will give you a URL you can share.
