nursing library

The Browzine “Nursing” Library

Pitt users now have access to BrowZine, a new tablet application that allows you to browse, read, and monitor numerous scholarly journals. All in a format optimized for iPad, Android, and Amazon tablets. You can search for Open Access and available Pitt journal subscriptions in BrowZine by category or individual title. Select your favorite journals and then add them to your Bookshelf where they’ll be available for quick and easy access.

Full-text articles of interest can be downloaded to a “Saved Articles” area and read later without an Internet connection. Articles can also be exported to other apps such as GoodReader and Notability. To help keep all of your information together in one place, you can save to Zotero, MendeleyDropbox, and other services.
