The Dana Medical Library is trialing the new interface BrowZine for accessing e-journals. If you’re planning to read any journals online over the next couple of weeks, please give BrowZine a try and let us know what you think!
Connect to BrowZine to use it in a web browser. Also, create an account and download the app from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store or Amazon App Store. With BrowZine, you can:
- Browse and read journals: Browse by subject, review tables of contents, and link to and download full articles.
- Stay Current with My Bookshelf: Create a personal bookshelf of titles to follow and receive new article notifications.
- Access on any device: Access BrowZine from your iOS and Android device and on the web to stay up to date wherever you are. It was originally developed for mobile devices, so it works really well on them.
- Save and export articles: Use the BrowZine app to save articles for off-line reading or export to services such as DropBox, Mendeley, RefWorks, EndNote, Zotero, Papers and more.
Your feedback could include responses to these questions:
Did you try the desktop or mobile version, or both?
How straightforward is it to access journals in your field currently and would BrowZine make a difference?
Did BrowZine allow you to do anything new and useful?
What are the drawbacks of BrowZine?
Other feedback would also be welcome. We’d like to make a decision about purchasing this product in the next two weeks, so responses before December 20 would be most welcome. Questions about this trial? Contact Donna O’Malley at 656-4415.
