Latest Updates for Browzine

"BrowZine is a no-brainer to me.  It's one of the few library-related tools that actually behaves according to today's user's expectations for what their devices and resources should be able to do."
-Elizabeth L. Winter
Asst. Department Head & Electronic Resources Coordinator
Georgia Tech Library, Georgia Institute of Technology


What Is Browzine and how you get it...

BrowZine Updates

Android Full-Screen Rotation

Android tablet users may now view BrowZine in portrait or landscape mode.

In-App Support
BrowZine now incorporates a support library.  If you have a question while using BrowZine, simply tap on the Settings button.  In Settings, tap on Support to browse our FAQ or email Browzine directly.


iOS Minimum Requirements
With the release of BrowZine version 1.6.0, BrowZine requires iOS 7.x or newer to run on iPad, iPhone and iPad Touch devices.  Existing iPad 1 users will still be able to use BrowZine, but future updates will not be available.  BrowZine for the iPad 1 will continue for some time before finally being sunset at some point in the future.

  • ACRL (Association of College & Research Libraries)
  • ASABE (American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers)
  • Association of Learned & Professional Society Publishers
