What is BrowZine?

BrowZine is a free tablet application from Third Iron that allows users to browse, read, and monitor journals available through the Trinity Library.  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



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

BrowZine is a brand new product and has worked to include journals from many of the 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.
