I am excited to announce the latest addition to our free access to subscription websites – Zinio.
Zinio is the “world’s largest digital library newsstand”, offering full-colour, interactive digital magazines. You will be able to browse the library’s magazine titles (see below) and choose what you want to read. You will also have the option of downloading titles onto a mobile device so they can be read offline. For each title, back copies will be available (starting from April 2015 only) and you can keep these back copies.
How do I access Zinio?
Zinio can be found on the library webpages, under ‘Free access to Subscription websites’ (left hand link on libraries home page). When on the page you’ll see a list of resources, grouped by subject. Zinio is under Newspapers and Magazines. You can click on ‘newspapers and magazines’ to get to this section. http://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/content/leisure-and-libraries/libraries/free-access-subscription-websites-0 Once on the Zinio page you can see the 22 titles we currently subscribe to (you’ll need to scroll on to page 2 to view the second page) Zinio can be used on library computers and at home!
