BrowZine: Getting Started

How to access and use BrowZine, a free tablet app for accessing and reading electronic content from journals.

What is BrowZine?

BrowZine allows users to browse, read, and monitor journals available through the Trinity Library online on your tablet, phone, or right on your desktop.  With the BrowZine app, you can:

  • Create a bookshelf of your favorite journals for easy, fast access
  • Read articles in a format optimized for a tablet device
  • Get alerts when new journal issues are published
  • Save articles to Zotero, Dropbox, or an app of your choice for pdf collecting and notetaking
  • Share links to articles with others by email, Facebook, or Twitter

 

Availability

BrowZine is now available for both the iPad and Android tablets.  Officially supported Android devices include the Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy, and Kindle Fire HD on the Ice Cream Sandwich platforms.

BrowZine has worked to include journals from major publishers, particularly in the sciences, but you’ll find that not all journals are yet included.  More and more journals will be added over time. An updated list of supported publishers is available on the Third Iron website.
