Browzine

Submitted by Frances Foret, Head of Collection Development at Tufts Hirsh Health Sciences Library.

Browzine allows users to browse, read, and monitor the journals available through their library and is a great tool for non-techies like me. When you first log in it quickly identifies your institution’s journal holdings and organizes them by general subject category. You can, of course, also search and retrieve holdings information by journal title name.

Browzine replicates the feeling of being in the print world of a library reading room where journals are shelved on periodicals display shelves. You can take a virtual trip of walking through the stacks browsing your institution’s journal holdings.

There is a “My Bookshelf” feature that corrals your favorite journals, making it simple to peruse them (this feature requires a personal login).

Browzine is easy to use, and the vendor is well-known for being very responsive to any questions or issues you may have. Browzine is not a free product but requires an annual subscription. At Tufts we have made the mobile and desktop versions available to our users.

Below please find more details about Browzine directly from Third Iron, the provider of this product.
