BrowZine

preview of BrowZine
BrowZine is a tool for reading e-journal issues on tablets, phones or on the web. It consolidates journals from several publishers, allowing you to read and browse issues through a single interface rather than looking up each journal individually.

Why this experiment?

The MIT Libraries tried BrowZine to explore ways to make online browsing more visually interesting and personalized. After a year-long trial, we decided not to renew our BrowZine subscription due to low adoption rate among our user community.

Experiment runtime: Spring 2016 – Fall 2016
