Also, through the pioneering work of the University of Price Edward Island, libraries using the CUFTS resource manager can now automatically update their holdings.  If you are a CUFTS library, contact us to learn how to take advantage of this terrific system.

We are looking forward to other vendors following suit.  We’re having good conversation with all the major companies about automatic holdings updates but nothing gets their attention like hearing from their customers.  Contact your vendor to ask for BrowZine updates today.  We’re ready when they are.

Support for Libraries

Now more than ever, BrowZine has content for everyone on your campus.  And we are here to help you in getting the word out!  Be sure to check out the terrific resources available on our Tools for Libraries page.

And look forward to the unveiling of our new Tools page in August.  An improved design with more robust assets, our new page will provide even more ways for you to help connect your users with BrowZine.

Coming Soon

Your BrowZine users will love the new developments we have in store, including adding annotations, supporting direct export to RefWorks and Mendeley, and adding push notifications.

And we’ll be announcing support for more publishers, including American Meteorological Association, Thieme, Informa, de Gruyter, Karger and more.
