Welcome to Spring 2015!

 

1. Chronicle of Higher Education

2. BrowZine

Members of the Northeastern community now have access to BrowZine - a new mobile app that allows you to browse, read, store, and monitor many of the library's scholarly journals in a format optimized for your iOS of Android device. Read more...

 

“The [BrowZine] app was incredibly easy to install and to sync between devices.  It’s also very user-friendly in continued use – the opposite of many high-maintenance apps that require significant effort for every use.  More importantly, it really has brought me back to the practice of browsing journals - and I hadn’t realized how much I’ve missed that. Using BrowZine on my iPad has the immersed in the literature feeling that I remember from browsing of print journals. BrowZine is readily viewed on even my older (I.e., small) iPhone, it’s as easy to use waiting time, time between meetings, etc. to browse tables of content and pull up articles I want to read.”     - Susan Powers-Lee, Professor of Biology
