BrowZine – Trial ended 15 July 2013

With the decline of print, databases have become the primary way publishers delivers journals. But databases are designed for searching, not reading. BrowZine works by uniting articles from databases into complete journals, then arranging them by subject on a library-branded newsstand. The result is a revolutionary new way to browse, read and monitor scholarly journals. All in a tablet format.

  • From your iPad, download BrowZine from the App Store and install it.
  • When you open BrowZine for the first time, you will see a list of schools, please select “University of Iowa”; then, enter your University of Iowa credentials (the same you would use with the proxy service to access resources from off campus).
  • Select the subject areas and start browsing!

If you have previously downloaded BrowZine and have been using our Open Access library, you will first need to log out of that library.  To do so, open BrowZine and tap the Settings button at the bottom; in the Settings page, tap the Logout/Change Library button in the upper right.  The list of libraries will appear, please follow the above steps.
