  5. Zinio

    Can I use this from home?: 
    yes

    Zinio provides a quick and easy way for Library patrons to read digital copies of some of their favorite magazines; access is available on any internet-enabled device -- just be sure to have your library card number ready. Zinio’s digital platform recreates a magazine page-for-page, including highly visual full-color pictures, while taking the reading experience even further through intuitive navigation, key word article search and interactive rich media elements such as audio and video.

     HELP with Zinio

    Zinio is extremely easy to use. You will need to login twice (technically, for 2 different accounts): the first is to access the magazine titles for which the Library has paid a subscription; the second is for the Zinio website which must be used to actually view the titles. You may find it easiest to use the same email and password for both logins (the Library portal and the Zinio.com website).
