BrowZine is a free iPad app that works with the University Libraries’ ejournal subscriptions. Once you download the app, you will be able to choose Bowling Green State University from the list of affiliated universities and log in using your BGSU username and password. Then you can browse our ejournals by title and subject and connect to full text from your iPad. Articles discovered through BrowZine can easily be sent to Zotero, Dropbox, iAnnotate, or several other services to integrate with your existing workflow.
To learn more about BrowZine, watch this introductory video, or attend one of our workshops! Three are scheduled: September 4, 2:30-3:30; September 12, 10:30-11:30, and September 27, 1:30-2:30. All will be held in Pallister Conference Room on the first floor of Jerome Library (NOT the Center for Teaching & Learning, nor Jerome Library 142, as previously reported!). To register, fill out this online form.
BGSU has only subscribed to BrowZine for the iOS platform, and it is currently only available for iPad. An iPhone version is in development and will be released in 2014.
We are excited about this resource and think it is a great tool to help researchers keep up with the scholarly literature in their disciplines. Try it, and let us know what you think!
