Extending Your Library Services with BrowZine
Tue, April 11, 2017, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM CDT
Browsing and reading medical journals are the best ways clinicians, nurses and researchers stay current with fast moving biomedical information. As print journals have shifted to the web, the journal collection has become largely invisible, accessible mainly through article level searching. Databases and discovery tools, however, are nothing like the old periodical reading rooms!
BrowZine is a leading technology that recovers the browsing and reading experience. Join Third Iron Co-Founder and President John Seguin, MLS to learn why medical libraries around the world use BrowZine to meet the needs of their users, extend library services, and promote better journal engagement.
Topics covered in the webinar:
Product overview: demonstration of the BrowZine web service and mobile applications
Taxonomy: review of the taxonomy used to categorize your journals for better discovery
Personalization: review of how My Bookshelf and My Articles may be used to follow favorite journals, be alerted when new articles are published and to save favorite articles – and how everything is automatically synchronized across devices
Integrations: examples of how you may link to BrowZine from LibGuides; using BrowZine as your journal search service; and use APIs for integrating BrowZine into catalogs and discovery services
Maintenance: review of how BrowZine can automatically synchronize with your e-journal holdings to reflect your current subscriptions
