Library Services: Journal Reading Apps

About Journal Reading Apps

Journal reading apps are now available to make it more convenient to keep up with the latest articles!  To get an electronic version of the Table of Contents of your favorite journals, sign up for a BrowZine account.  To be alerted about articles about subjects of interest or key articles in select journals, register for Read by QxMD.  Both allow you to save articles to read later and request articles from Banner Library Services if the full article does not immediately download.  Setting up an OpenAthens account is required to be able to access Banner subscriptions from mobile devices.
