Out of Scope

What you won't find in BrowZine:

  • Journals published prior to 2005, even if the library has access to them
  • Magazines, newspapers, and other non-journal publications
  • Journals only available in print 

Request a Journal

For a variety of reasons, even if a journal is in scope, it may not be available through BrowZine.  Here's what you can do:

  1. Check the list of supported publishers
  2. To add a journal title, complete a Content Request
  3. Receive updates on the status of your request directly from BrowZine

Pro Tips

  • Use your personal email to create an account. It makes your account more portable.
  • Web and mobile bookshelves sync automatically.
  • You can use just the web, or just the app. No need to use both.
  • Will still need to create Interlibrary Loan requests for embargoed or unavailable content.
