SA Health Library Service: BrowZine

What is BrowZine?

BrowZine is a current contents awareness product that allows you to keep track of your favourite journal titles and link through to full text articles from your mobile device or your computer.

To get more out of BrowZine watch an instructional video here (10 minutes).

For further assistance or to book a hands-on tutorial, contact your site librarian.

Mobile Device Access

Getting Started with BrowZine

Search in your device's appropriate app store for 'BrowZine' and download the app onto your device. (If you have previously been using BrowZine with our Open Access library, please delete the app and reinstall it.)

Tap on the app icon to access BrowZine. A list of libraries will appear. Select the SA Health Library. Enter your SALUS logon username and password to continue.

The app will prompt you to create an account to save articles and journals. Sign up with an email address and password of your choice. Please make a note of these details.

If you already have an account created on computer or mobile device, sign in with your account details. Both versions of BrowZine stay syncronised so you can access your collection where ever you are.


Browsing on BrowZine

When you open BrowZine, it should open to the BrowZine Library view (not on iPad). From the BrowZine library you can browse using subject categories or you search by typing in a title or subject. 


Browsing using Subject Categories

When searching for a journal using a subject category on mobile devices, select a subject area that you are interested in. The list will narrow down to terms within that subject area until you are presented with a screen of journal covers.

Tap on the cover that you are interested in.


Searching by Title

Search for the title using full words and tap on the title that best fits your search.

Please note that the full text resources that work best with BrowZine are the ones available to all of SA Health staff, rather than the hospital site specific resources.
