October 1st, 2012 · by spolanka · No Comments

Last week, I posted a press release from Third Iron, a company founded by a librarian, John Seguin.  Third Iron released an iPad app called BrowZine.  This app allows patrons the ability to browse open access journals and library subscription journals (library subscription required) and keep track of articles on individual devices.  As was stated in the Press Release, “BrowZine combines articles from databases to create full journals, organizes them on shelves arranged by subject, and delivers a reading experience optimized for the iPad.  With BrowZine, users can easily find journals made available by their library, browse titles of interest, and read individual articles or the complete journal.”

I spoke to John to get more information on how BrowZine works, which you can listen to in our interview. John’s interview, and 50 others, are on the NSR interviews page.

For more information on BrowZine, visit www.thirdiron.com or download the app at http://itunes.com/apps/browzine.  Below are a couple screen shots of the new app.
