Bishop Library now subscribes to BrowZine, a new tablet application that allows you to browse, read and monitor many of the Library’s scholarly journals. All in a format optimized for your iPad or Android tablet!
To learn more, please take a look at this short two minute video: http://thirdiron.com/browzine-ipad-app/video/
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.
BrowZine currently includes thousands of the Library's subscription journals along with 200+ open access journals. Back issues span the last eight years, when available.
Browse for journals by title or subject. Subjects include: Arts & Humanities, Biological Sciences, Biomedical & Health Sciences, Business & Economics, Earth & Environmental Sciences, Engineering & Technology, History, Law & Legal Studies, Mathematics & Statistics, Philosophy & Religion, Physical Sciences, and Sociobehavioral Sciences.
Currently, BrowZine only works with tablets, but smartphone access is being developed by the vendor and should be available in 2014.
