Reference and Reading Apps

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.
