What if I told you there was a way you could download a .pdf file of a journal article we are subscribed to from a reference in Wikipedia or PubMed or hundreds of other Scholarly Publisher Websites?
Remember that article you stumbled across that looked like it might have had the information you needed in your research…. but then you were distracted and now you actually can’t remember what it was called or where it was from?
Remember that your tutor mentioned that the best journal for your research was out monthly, but you’re so busy with your part-time work and your studies that you keep forgetting to check on new issues?
Remember when we introduced BrowZine? Well, BrowZine can help you with solutions to these and other issues by providing you with personalised bookshelves and the ability to save articles to your profile with a click of a button. And here’s how.
Sick of search boxes? Are you looking for a different way to find those e-journals and articles you need for your studies and research? Last year we launched a brand new way of discovering e-journals.
Everyone’s brain is different. I’ve known that mine is different in a particular way since I was at secondary school. I can’t picture things in my head. It doesn’t matter what you describe – a sunny beach, the Drill Hall Library where I work, members of my family – I simply cannot “see” it unless it’s right there in front of me. Apparently, this is unusual, though to me it’s perfectly normal.
