Mason Libraries now offer access to BrowZine, a new tablet app that allows you to browse, read and monitor most of the Libraries’ journals – all from your iPad and/or Android tablet. BrowZine includes thousands of journals, from Open Access publishers such as BioMed Central and PLoS, as well as content from Mason Libraries’ journal subscriptions, including such publishers as ACS, ACM, Elsevier, IEEE, Nature Publishing, Springer, SAGE, Wiley – and more. BrowZine will continue to expand, adding new titles and features for scholarly researchers.Note well: BrowZine for iPhone and Android smartphones is not currently available. The company expects to offer it by late 2013.
