BrowZine provides for libraries a new way of delivering e-journal access and to better serve their fast-growing populations of mobile users. BrowZine provides an innovative way for patrons to connect with their favorite journals at any time.

  • BrowZine is an application for iOS and Android devices that allows readers to easily find, browse and read many of the e-journals available from their library.
  • BrowZine attempts to replicate the experience of browsing print journals -- when journals were printed, delivered to libraries in the mail, and patrons came to the library to thumb through the most current issues -- in an electronic, mobile-friendly environment.
  • BrowZine arranges ejournals by subject in a "electronic newsstand" format so users may find titles on the "shelf," select an issue, and review tables of contents.
  • BrowZine allows articles to be saved on the user's device, exported to bibliographic management tools such as Zotero and Mendeley, and links can be sent to colleagues via email or social media.
  • BrowZine's "My Bookshelf" gives users the ability to save favorite titles and be notified when new articles are published.

  • Use the links above or search for BrowZine in your device's app store to start the download and install process.
  • Choose your library. We're listed as Virginia Tech Libraries near the bottom of the long list. (Alumni and non-affiliates can use the open access option.)
  • Enter your PID and password. This authentication uses the same method as Off Campus Sign In, which requires a valid, unexpired password and a current affiliation with the university.
  • Allow the app to download our list of journals. This process can take several minutes (we subscribe to very many journals).
  • You can browse for journals by subject or title. Note that every journal available through our subscribes WILL NOT appear in this list, only participating publishers.
