BrowZine is an amazing tool which lets researchers easily discover and track up-to-date scholarly journal content. Browsing is difficult in an online environment since each resource is stored in a different database with a different interface. BrowZine solves this problem and makes most of our scholarly journal subscriptions accessible on one easy-to-use platform. View our overview video and screenshot tutorial guide to learn more.
Suggested Uses for Faculty:
1. Create a BrowZine account so you can stay up to date with the latest content in your field. With an account, you can add journals to your bookshelf. In the future, with just a few clicks, you can log-in to BrowZine and access all of the materials on your bookshelf.
PRO TIP: Download the BrowZine app to make life even easier! It's free! Just download it wherever you get your apps and select Fielding as your institution.
2. Use BrowZine links in your course or syllabi to easily connect students to journals in a certain subject area. All links in BrowZine are permanent which means that when you land on a page of interest you can just copy the URL from the address bar and share it with students!
For example, imagine you would like students to review a journal or article in the field of Social Psychology. In BrowZine, navigate to this subject area and then add that URL to your syllabus, like so: https://browzine.com/libraries/1979/subjects/67/bookcases/169/bookshelves/1232?sort=title
