The library now subscribes to BrowZine, a new tablet application  that allows you to browse, read and monitor many of the library’s  scholarly journals on your iPad or Android tablet.  Items found in BrowZine can easily be synced up with Zotero, Dropbox, and several other services to help you keep all of your information together in one place.  Please contact your liaison librarian with your feedback about BrowZine.
