Browse the Library's Journals on Your iPad or Android Tablet: BrowZine Trial

The library has just launched a trial of a tablet application that lets you browse many of the library's academic journals. The app is called BrowZine and we have trial access until Mar 5, 2014. If you own an iPad or Android tablet, or have access to one, we'd like to invite you to try the app and tell us what you think.

At this time, the supported journals are those provided by the following journal aggregators: EBSCO, ProQuest, and Ovid. We expect more providers to be added gradually.

To access BrowZine for the first time, please do the following:
• Download the BrowZine app on your tablet. Go to the App Store, Google Play, or Kindle/Amazon store and search for BrowZine.
• NOTE: we support the following Android tablets: Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy, and Kindle Fire HD.
• Install the BrowZine app. Make sure you have the most up-to-date version.
• Open BrowZine and Go to "Choose Library". Search for Claremont Colleges and tap to choose.
• Enter your Last name and ID number to log in. Your credentials will only be stored on your personal device.
• Go to "Subjects" and select subject area OR "Titles A-Z" to search for a specific title. Start browsing!

If you've already been using BrowZine's Open Access library, you will need to log out of that library by doing the following:
• Open BrowZine. Go to "Settings" at bottom of page and tap "Change Library" in the upper right corner.
• Go to "Choose Library". Search for Claremont Colleges and tap to choose.
• Enter your Last name and ID number to log in. Your credentials will only be stored on your personal device.
• Go to "Subjects" and select subject area OR "Titles A-Z" to search for a specific title. Start browsing!

Here's some more information regarding the application, as well as a video, demonstrating how it works.

Please send your feedback to Maria Savova (maria_savova@cuc.claremont.edu), the Library's Collection Management & Digital Integration Librarian.
