The University Library has licensed LibKey/BrowZine for its users, a software solution that significantly speeds up access to e-journals and the articles they feature.
At present, LibKey/BrowZine includes most of the e-journals licensed by University Library Klagenfurt as well as a large number of open access journals. This service can be used within the IP address range of the University of Klagenfurt. To gain remote access (from outside the campus) to the licensed content of the University Library Klagenfurt users need to connect via proxy server.
BrowZine offers easy and convenient use of electronic journal content.
You can currently find most of the e-journals made available by the University Library Klagenfurt as well as a large number of open access journals in BrowZine.
BrowZine allows you to
- search for journal titles
- view journals by topic
- display the tables of contents of the journals
- compile journal titles along with the original title page on a virtual bookshelf, “My Bookshelf”
- set up alerts for new articles in journals
- save journal articles to read at a later date, “My Articles”
- export journal articles to literature management programmes and other services such as Dropbox
To create a personal library that includes the functions “My Bookshelf” and “My Articles”, you need to register free of charge. Your personal library is automatically synchronised on all your devices running BrowZine.
If you are on campus, BrowZine automatically displays the main page with the logo of the University of Klagenfurt. Simply select “University of Klagenfurt” from the list of libraries.
To gain remote access (from outside the campus) to the licensed content of the University Library Klagenfurt users need to connect via proxy server.
BrowZine has been optimised for mobile devices (smartphone, tablet, etc.), but can also be accessed from any browser.
