ITS News

ITS News is your source for the latest information about computing and networking at NYU. We deliver our news via a blog (weblog) at, which is divided into four categories:

  • ITS News, which contains all of our general service and facility announcements;
  • Computer Security Alerts, which contains urgent notices about worms, viruses, phishing scams, and other computer security exploits;
  • Computer Security News, which offers important information to help you keep your computer and data more secure; and
  • Connect-Direct, with news items from our monthly email newsletter.

All news items posted to our blog appear automatically on the main page of the ITS website and in the Ask ITS area of NYUHome. If you wish, you can also subscribe to receive new alerts as they are posted (see below).

Subscribe to ITS' News Feed

One of the most useful features of a blog, aside from the ability to search an archive of older items, is the ability to subscribe to a "feed" that automatically delivers news items to your aggregator software (also known as news readers or RSS readers) as they are published.

To subscribe to the main ITS News feed, visit and click the "subscribe to this blog's feed" link at the bottom right, or paste the following into your aggregator's subscribe window: Below is an example using the popular NetNewsWire news aggregator.

Link to an ITS News Item

If you wish to add a link to an ITS news item from your blog, web page, email message, or elsewhere, be sure to click the "Permalink" link at the bottom of the desired news item in the ITS News blog, then copy the full URL from the address bar at the top of your browser window. This will ensure that your link always stays active in the future.Subscribe to the ITS Statistics & GIS Email List

It's not technically a news feed, but statistics and mapping specialists at ITS Faculty Technology Services maintain an NYU List, which will send you email to announce free NYU workshops and events in these fields. To sign up, send a blank email to, or subscribe to the "statistics" list through the Lists channel of NYUHome.
