BrowZine: Read academic journals on your tablet
UST’s subscription currently includes over 3,000 UST-owned titles, browsable by general subject area. BrowZine is a free app — by Third Iron — for accessing and reading content from academic journals on an iPad or Android tablet. The app allows users to:
- select academic journals from a “shelf” display
- browse complete journal issues,
- read individual articles,
- collect favorite journals on a shelf of one’s own,
- save favorite articles,
- and perform additional tasks with journal content.
To get started, on an iPad search for “BrowZine” in the App Store, (on an Android device find it in the Google Play Store) and download the app for free; when initially launching BrowZine, select the University of St Thomas from the drop-down list, use your UST credentials to log in, and start browsing.
BrowZine is growing fast and will continue to expand, adding new titles and features as time goes on. Work is progressing to include RefWorks integration, as well as content from many more publishers. If a favorite title isn’t available now, it is very possible it might become available in the near future! Find more information – along with an informative video – on the Third Iron website.
