BrowZine is now available for both IOS and Android mobile devices.

BrowZine includes journals from many of the major publishers (including OA), particularly in the sciences, but not all journals are yet included.  More and more journals will be added over time. An updated list of supported publishers is available on the Third Iron website.

To sign in:

1) After downloading and opening the app for the first time, you will be asked to 'Choose a Library'.

2) Scroll down to, or type into the search bar, 'Syracuse University' and select.
