BrowZine: An iPad App for Browsing Journals
Mayo Clinic Libraries has recently subscribed to BrowZine, an iPad app, that allows users to browse their favorite scholarly journals, and download and read articles from those journals. The app is integrated with the library’s electronic journal subscriptions allowing users to access to approximately 3500 journals. You need to be connected to one of the secure Mayo wifi networks, or have VPN access from your iPad, to browse the library’s e-journals.
You can find journals either by subject categories or alphabetically by title.
You can create your own bookshelf of journals and save articles from those journals.
According to our BrowZine statistics, since our subscription began in June, tables of contents for almost 3000 journals have been viewed, and over 1200 full text articles have been downloaded.
An iPhone version will be available later this year.
Please contact Ann Farrell if you have any questions about this new service.
