Bishop Library subscribes to BrowZine, which includes the BrowZine app for iOS/Android tablets and smartphones, and BrowZine web, the new option for desktop computers/laptops. Through BrowZine, you can browse and read thousands of the Library's scholarly journals plus 200+ open access journals. Back issues span ten years or less, depending upon the journal. To learn more, please visit the BrowZine LibGuide at http://libguides.lvc.edu/browzine.
To download the free app, go to: http://thirdiron.com/download.
When initially launching BrowZine, select Lebanon Valley College from
the drop down list. Then, enter your LVC username/password, the same
campus credentials you use for off-campus access to library resources. The BrowZine app requires an iOS version of 7.1 or newer for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch devices. For Android devices, 4.1+ is required. The app has been tested on the following Android devices: Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy Tab & Note, and Amazon Kindle Fire HD.
To access BrowZine web on your desktop computer or laptop, click on the Scholarly Journal Room icon below. BrowZine web requires an up-to-date internet browser and works with the following versions: Internet Explorer 11+, Firefox 31+, Chrome 43+, and Safari 8+. Links within BrowZine web are durable or permalinks, so you can copy the URL from the browser to link to a particular category of titles or even a single journal's table of contents screen. Off-campus, you will be prompted to login with your LVC username/password to access FT articles.
BrowZine web is also accessible from the library's website at www.lvc.edu/library. From the Start Your Search Now - Journals tab, click on Scholarly Journal Room.
