What is BrowZine?
BrowZine is Dana Medical Library's new way to browse and read electronic journals. It provides a more graphical, consistent view of journals so you can read an issue almost the way you would flip through a paper copy. It's intended to streamline access to articles so you don't have to worry about which site we subscribe to for the year you want. BrowZine figures that out for you.
There are a few things to keep in mind about using BrowZine:
- BrowZine is focused on providing access to recent issues. For anything before 2005, it will send you to our old system.
- Journal websites have to structure their content in a way BrowZine can recognize. Some titles -- even prominent, current journals -- aren't structured the way BrowZine needs them to be. For these titles, you'll be sent to our old system.
- For mobile access, you'll need to use the BrowZine app.
Can I still use your old system?
Yes, our old system (also known as "SFX" or "Journals A-Z") is still there and is actually used by BrowZine for some things. If you want to use it directly, we're now calling it our "Classic E-Journal Search", and there's a link from our Journals page.
What if I'm on a mobile device?
BrowZine has mobile apps for iOS and Android. The web version should redirect you to the app if it's installed, or will prompt you to install it if you haven't already.
One of our librarians has created detailed instructions for Getting started with the BrowZine mobile app.
