What is BrowZine?

Murphy Library is now licensing BrowZine, an application for tablets, smart phones, and now (new fall 2015!) the web that allows users to browse, read, and monitor many of the library’s scholarly journals.  With BrowZine, you can:

  • Create a bookshelf of many of your favorite journals for easy, fast access
  • Read articles in a format optimized for a tablet device
  • Get alerts when new journal issues are published
  • Save articles to Zotero, Dropbox, or an app of your choice for pdf collecting and notetaking
  • Share links to articles with others by email, Facebook, or Twitter
