Trial Access to Browzine


For the next month we have trial access to Browzine – an app that allows you to easily access and browse journals on your mobile devices. Download the app via the Apple App Store, Google Play Store or Amazon Kindle App Store, enter your Cardiff University username and password and you can easily browse journals that Cardiff University subscribe to in mobile format. You can also create a personal bookshelf of your favourite journals, bookmark or save articles to read later, export the reference to Mendeley, Zotero, RefWorks and Endnote (iOS only) and also opt to be alerted when new issues of a journal are available.

We’re excited for you to try this app as we think this would be a really valuable resource to add to our collection – let us know what you think by giving it a go and then sending your feedback to healthlibrary@cardiff.ac.uk.

There is also a video you can watch that shows how Browzine works:
