Have Tablet, Get Journal Article PDF's ... For Wherever You Are

BrowZine

BrowZine, a new service at Boston College, makes this easy and fast. Download BrowZine to your tablet to get access to your key journals, pull up pdfs, read them, or store for off-line reading time.

Get Started with BrowZine:

  • Download the free BrowZine app at the Apple Apps Store, Google Play Store or the Amazon Kindle App Store.
  • When you open BrowZine for the first time, choose Boston College from the list of schools, then enter your Agora ID and password.
  • Drag-drop your favorite journal titles onto your bookshelf so that you can just click to find the latest the next time you go to BrowZine.
  • Save PDF's for reading, wherever.

BrowZine is available for all versions of the iPad and iPad Mini running iOS 5.1 or later, and on Android tablets running Android 4.0 or higher, including the Google Nexus 7 or 10, the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and the Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD. Versions for iPhones and Android smartphones will be released sometime in the fall.

(Note: BrowZine is only available as an app for mobile devices, and is not available for laptop or desktop computers. Currently there is not support for Windows tablets.)
