BrowZine: A new tool for a new year

Access journals from your smartphone or tablet


The MIT Libraries is happy to offer a new and easy way to keep up (or catch up) with journals from the comfort of your mobile device. A download of the app BrowZine, a subscription based service on trial this year, lets you choose scholarly journals from a variety of subjects, set up a “bookshelf,” and tap the latest covers to browse current issues or read what you need. “Reading lists” allow you to save articles for later (on the device being used). A web version is also available.

To get started, see the directions below or check out our BrowZine guide.

Thanks, and happy browsing!

From your browser: Simply visit the BrowZine website. It will automatically detect if you’re on campus and select your library; if off-campus, you will be prompted initially to select your library.

From your mobile device:

  • Download BrowZine: From your Android, iOS, or Kindle Fire device, visit the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, or Amazon App Store. Search for “BrowZine” and download the app. (If you or any of your colleagues have previously been using BrowZine with our Open Access library, please delete the app and reinstall it.)
  • Access BrowZine: Tap on the app icon to open BrowZine. A list of libraries will appear, please select “Massachusetts Institute of Technology — MIT.”  Enter your credentials; these will be the same used for remote access.
  • Start browsing: Use the Subject dropdown menu to browse by subject categories or Titles A-Z to find a specific journal title by name.
