Try BrowZine for the iPad during February

Do you own an iPad?  Do you read scholarly journals?  Then BrowZine might be a great tool for you! 

The Library is offering a trial of BrowZine during the month of February to all University of Chicago users.  BrowZine is an app for the iPad which assists users by presenting open access and Library-subscribed journals on a common newsstand.  The result is an easy and familiar way to browse, read and monitor scholarly journals across the disciplines or to have a convenient list of favorite journals titles at your fingertips.  BrowZine works with the campus proxy server, giving you access to your favorite journals on your iPad.

Articles accessed through BrowZine may be synced up with Zotero, Dropbox or several other services to help keep all of your information together in one place.

If you have any questions about BrowZine or would like a guided a tour, please contact crerar-reference@lib.uchicago.edu
