  1. Start

    On the PC, when I go to http://browzine.com, I'd like to start on My Bookshelf - as long as I'm logged in. This is in analogy to how Browzine behaves on the iPad. When not logged in, Browzine would start in the Browzine Library.

        • It'd be nice to be able to get a url to a widget for posting to social media. The embed code is great for libguides!

          I would like to do target marketing to departments, so it'd be nice to tweet something to the Art Department about art education journals via browzine with a nice widget/gif displaying

              We have been in contact with ProQuest and as of April 22, 2016 they have no information about a new API that will support exporting from 3rd parties to Refworks 3. Refworks 2 has a mature API which BrowZine uses to support those customers and will continue to do so. ProQuest needs to produce an API for Refworks 3 in order for BrowZine to interact with it. We will keep you posted on this thread as we hear about ProQuest’s progress on delivering the new API.

            • Marketing widget between 190 and 400 pixels

              Is it possible to get a BrowZine widget that's between the 190 and 400 pixel widths. In LibGuides, the 190 looks good in 25% columns, and the 400 fits within 42% and 50% columns. But for 33% columns, the 190 is too narrow and the 400 runs into the next column.

              • Eliminate "The" at the beginning of journal titles.

                Some of the titles start with "The" (The Journal of Chemical Physics), so if someone's browsing a shelf for the title they'd have to look in the T's rather than the J's.

                • Allow a user to mark an issue unread (the system already marks articles unread when a new issue/article comes out)

                  It would be useful for a user to mark an issue unread for them to better keep track of issues/articles that they wish to read, whether the issue is new or not. Note that BrowZine already marks new articles/issues unread.

                  • add the ability to create a placeholder for non-BrowZine journals.

                    Add a way for users to add a non-BrowZine compatible journal to their bookshelf and link it to the journal website, library A-to-Z list or other location.

                    • add the capability to login via SSO.

                      Integrating the ability to login using SSO would make accessing BrowZine much easier.

                        • Enable a way to bookmark a spot in a journal

                          It can sometimes be useful to not necessarily save a particular article but to bookmark my place when scanning through numerous old issues of a journal so that I can easily pick up where I left off later. Creating a function where I can place this marker on an article within an issue which is easily retrievable from the journal level and that would sync across devices would allow me to easily pick up where I left off, regardless of the device I'm using.

                          • Add ability to customize the taxonomy/which subjects appear

                            It would be nice to suppress subject areas that appear in BrowZine which are not relevant to a particular library. For example, for hospital libraries to suppress the Arts & Humanities subject area.

                              If a user encounters an error such as "Full Text Failure - Your institution does not have access to this title. Please see your library for assistance", chances are they won't contact the library. It would be great if there was an option for the library to somehow be able to access a log or alert that these errors are occurring, so then we may properly update our holdings

                                    When using the iPad app I often I see an article title that I want to send to another colleague that is not related to my research field. It would be great to have a way to share paper with a colleague without first downloading the paper to my device.

                                    On the iPad this could easily be achieved through right swiping the paper title with configurable sharing options available.

                                        I (Leiden Univ) deleted the app from my mobile device and went to browzine.com. The app will be opened but I prefer the mobile website.

                                          Take a look! BrowZine.com is now accessible on your smart phone for all of the “public” features that do not require you to sign into your account (My Bookshelf and My Articles). The mobile responsive one nicely suggests to the user to download the app to use these features. We will be following up this release by another one in the future that will contain mobile responsive versions of those features as well. Thanks for your interest in this enhancement!
