The Library is running a trial of BrowZine until 18th January. BrowZine is a new application that allows you to browse, read and follow thousands of the library’s scholarly journals (see list of publishers at http://support.thirdiron.com/knowledgebase/articles/132654-what-publishers-do-you-support) either from your desktop/laptop or via an app for your Android and iOS mobile devices.
Articles found in BrowZine can easily be synced up with Zotero, Mendeley, Endnote, Evernote, Dropbox or other services to help keep all of your information together in one place.
To learn more, please take a look at this short “BrowZine on Campus” video below:
