Mobile Resources: Apps

A Note for Clinical Bound Students

Approximately 3-4 weeks before attending Clinical Bound, you will receive an email message with information about the clinical reference apps that Frontier provides for use during your clinical rotation. This message will include a code that will allow you to download a one-year subscription to Lexicomp.

Before you come to Clinical Bound, be sure to go through the Mobile Resources for Clinical guide, at the link below or in the CB 101 course.

BrowZine

What is BrowZine?

BrowZine is an app that brings recent issues of scholarly journals to your mobile device for browsing and reading. As the name suggests, it is designed for browsing, and is not focused on searching. You might think of it like the reading area of a library, where current journals are displayed.

What isn't  BrowZine?

BrowZine is not designed for in-depth research or searching. If that is what you need to do, we recommend using one of the library databases. Frequently used databases are listed on the Library homepage.
