New Tablet App for E-Journal Access - Browzine

You can now get Browzine - a tablet app for iPad or Android devices - through FIU Libraries. This app allows you to quickly access the full-text of e-journals that FIU Libraries provide. Please note that only a subset of the e-journals and their issues that FIU Medical Library subscribes to are available through this app due to the systems issues between the app and each publisher's website.

This app is not currently available for the smartphone but this should be supported early next year.

Download the app on your tablet device and select FIU as your institution. Enjoy!
