Browzine, a free app available for IOS and Android devices is getting an official rollout this week. The University of Wisconsin Library System purchased the program, extending the trial that was enacted over the summer. Browzine is an innovative way to read, save and annotate academic articles. With a clean and intuitive design, Browzine should prove to be both very popular and useful for students and staff at the Law School. For users who have already downloaded the trial, Browzine will continue to work for you without re-downloading.
Browzine allows you to create a bookshelf where you can save favorite journals. You can also save specific articles that can be read offline. Annotation is simply a matter of sending your chosen article to your favorite PDF reader. Browzine connects with Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, and Zotero allowing you to access your article anywhere and on any computer. You can also share on Social Media or via email.
Currently, Browzine subscribes to 93 “Law and Legal Studies” journals, in addition to thousands of journals across a variety of other subjects. This number will continue to grow since Browzine is working with an ever-growing list of publishers to get content. Peruse the entire list here. Law patrons can search any subject, or search for journals by title. For a short review on Browzine capabilities, watch this introductory video.
