The UMKC Libraries Electronic Resources Support Team has made the decision to no longer update this blog. We will keep the existing posts on this blog but will not be adding any new posts. News and updates regarding the libraries’ online collections shall be made available through other means.
That’s right! You can browse, read and save articles in scholarly journals right on your Andorid tablet or Kindle Fire HD. Just download the app from Google Play or Amazon.
BrowZine lets you:
- Read scholarly journals in a format that is optimized for tablets.
- Create a personal bookshelf of favorite journals.
- Be alerted when new issues of a journal are available.
- Bookmark articles for reading later.
- Easily save to Zotero, Dropbox, or Mendeley.
BrowZine is an easy-to-use way to stay current with the journals you want to read the most. Be aware, however, that not all of the library’s journals are available. The company is working with publishers to add their content to this service, so if you are looking for a particular journal, check the list of participating publishers often.
Important: BrowZine is compatable with Android version 4.0 and later. (These versions ar also known as Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean).
Want to see BrowZine in action? There’s a great video demonstration of BrowZine on the Third Iron website.

The first time you use the app, you will need to select University of Missouri – Kansas City in the list of institutions and type in your UMKC username and password. After that, though, you won’t need to sign in again to use BrowZine.
