Browzine Trial starts NOW!

Browzine is an iPad app that personalises our ejournals to make browsing your favourite titles much more intuitive. 

The library is trialling Browzine until 16th October TRIAL EXTENDED and we need your help evaluating it.
 
With the decline of print, databases have become the primary way publishers delivers journals. But databases are designed for searching, not reading. BrowZine works by uniting articles from databases into complete journals, then arranging them by subject on a library-branded newsstand. The result is a revolutionary new way to browse, read and monitor scholarly journals. All in a tablet format your researchers will love.

 
BrowZine works by organizing the articles found in Open Access and subscription databases, uniting them into complete journals, then arranging these journals on a common newsstand. The result is an easy and familiar way to browse, read and monitor scholarly journals across the disciplines.
