After launching Zinio for Libraries in March, we've received dozens of requests to add new titles to the service. We've been paying attention, and have just added 40 new online magazine subscriptions that you can download to your computer or mobile device. These are full-page, full-color, interactive magazines that you keep for as long as you want.
Since March, our top request from you was The Economist, which is now available to read online and download. We've also added The New York Review of Books, children's magazines such as Chirp and chickaDEE, glossy mags like Town & Country and OK! Magazine, and Sound & Vision and Shindig! for the music buff. For Spanish speakers, we've added Furia Musical and Seventeen from Mexico to add to our growing Spanish collection.
To get started, head to our Virtual Library, click on Zinio Magazines, and read the Set-up Tips and User Guide or watch the short introductory video. Zinio downloads don't count towards any checkouts, and there are no limits. All you need is an Austin Public Library card and an internet connection. You can even click through to Zinio and browse through the magazine covers before signing up.
If you don't see the magazine you're interested in, please use our Suggest a Title form. Even if it isn't available to use through Zinio for Libraries right now, we'll keep it on our wish list. If you have trouble with Zinio, Ask a Librarian or click the Help link on the bottom of the RBDigital Gateway. So check out Zinio, download some magazines, and start building your personalized virtual magazine library.
