We’re thrilled to announce that as of this summer, our ever-popular BrowZine service is also available on a web platform!
Two years ago, UST Libraries introduced BrowZine, a service used by hundreds of institutions around the world that allows you to browse, read and follow thousands of the library’s scholarly journals from your Android and iOS mobile devices. Now its features are also available on the web! To learn more, please take a look at this short introductory video. Some current highlights are listed below:
With BrowZine, you can:
- Browse and read journals: Browse journals by subject, easily review tables of contents, and download full articles
- Share your reading list with students and colleagues: Use the durable linking capability of browzine.com to easily link to subject-specific and personalized “shelves” in BrowZine. (Imagine the possibilities of embedding a widget of titles in Blackboard to help students familiarize themselves with journals in their field!)
In the mobile app, you can create a personal experience as well:
- Create your own bookshelf: Add journals to your personal bookshelf and be notified when new articles are published
- Save and export articles: Save articles for off-line reading or export to services such as DropBox, Mendeley, RefWorks, Zotero, Papers and more
More features are on their way as BrowZine.com develops this new interface. You can look forward to additional updates in the months to come!
Start using BrowZine today by visiting browzine.com. On your mobile device, download the free app from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store or Amazon App Store. One simple authentication with your UST credentials is all it takes to create an account and start exploring (and sharing!) our collection in this dynamic new way.
We hope you enjoy using BrowZine. Please send any comments or questions to Laura Hansen.
