BrowZine App Print Page

What is BrowZine?

BrowZine Logo

BrowZine is an application optimized for iPhones, iPads, & Android tablets that delivers a new way of browsing scholarly journals by subject area. Users can access not only hundreds of Open Access journals from key publishers such as BioMed Central and PLoS, but also the e-journal content made available by EKU Libraries’ subscriptions to individual journals such as EBSCO, Elsevier, T&F, NEJM, JAMA, Springer, Science and Wiley, and more.


Getting started*


1.  Download from the desired App Store

2.  Next, select Eastern Kentucky University from the list

3. When prompted, enter your EKU login credentials.  (These are the same credentials you would use to login to email or EKU Direct.)

4.  Next, BrowZine will take a few moments to set up your library for initial use by synchronizing your holdings with our server.  That's it - you're done! 

*Important: If you already are running the Open Access Publishers Only version of BrowZine, you will need to first logout of your current library to get into EKU’s trial library.  To do this, select "Settings" at the bottom of the screen and then in the Settings panel, choose "Logout" from the top right hand corner. This will put you back at the list of institutions. Proceed from Step 2 above.
