BrowZine is a tablet-based alerting service that allows you to browse, read and monitor many of the Penn Libraries journal subscriptions on your iPad, Android or Kindle. It works by pulling together articles from library subscribed databases, uniting them into complete issues and displaying them in a “newsstand” type presentation.
Simply locate the journals titles you are interested in by browsing through the subject categories or A-Z list. Your chosen titles will now be displayed on your personal bookshelf. Browzine is currently working on push notifications for when new content is available.
When initially launching BrowZine, select University of Pennsylvania from the drop down list. Enter your PennKey credentials when prompted and you are ready to go! Unlike other current awareness tools, you will be able to access your journals from off-campus without having to proxy. You even have the ability to sync individual articles to RefWorks, Dropbox, and other services to keep all of your information together in one place.
