BrowZine Trial – Browse journals on your iPad

Have an iPad?  Help the Library evaluate a new research tool that is being considered for possible subscription.

The UC Libraries have set up a trial for BrowZine, an iPad app that lets you create a “bookshelf” of your favorite journals. Browse tables of contents, read articles, and send to EndNote, Zotero, Dropbox or whatever app you use to organize and manage your papers.

If you want to give it a test spin, search for “BrowZine” in the App Store and download the app for free; when initially launching BrowZine, select UC San Diego from the drop down list.

  • This trial ends April 30, 2013.
  • We would appreciate your feedback while we consider subscribing to this service.  After trying BrowZine, please fill out this short survey.

This app is SO great! Please license it!

The best part is that articles are not isolated like they are in google searches. We get the whole journal without the paper!! This is amazing!!
