A Digital Bookshelf for Your Journals

Thanks to the folks at Welch Medical Library, everyone at JHU now has access to a cool iPad app called Browzine. Download it, choose Johns Hopkins from a list of schools, and start reading!

Browzine lets you browse digital journals; it's a step closer to thumbing through a print issue. Browzine alerts you to new issues, lets you save articles, send them via email, and send to Zotero.

Since Browzine has to work with the publishers, not ALL the journals JHU readers have access to are currently included in Browzine. For instance, I've added Science, Applied Physics A, and Art History to my bookshelf. But Nature wasn't available as of 4/16/2013.

Watch the video to learn more about Browzine. If you try it, let us know what you think!
