BrowZine Features

  1. Create a bookshelf that can be integrated into libguides, instead of the current practice of building a display from scratch.

    I am a subject librarian for the School of Engineering. I have 8 subject guides corresponding to 8 disciplines. At the moment, the only way of displaying key journals in BrowZine is to build a table of titles from scratch. Instead, I would like to be able to create a bookshelf for each discipline, and integrate each bookshelf into the corresponding libguide.

  2. Saving to My Articles could be more intuitive

    When adding an article to "My Articles" I was given the choice of "General collection" or "Create a new collection" in the pop-up box. I clicked the check-mark next to General Collection and clicked done, and the article didn't save to my articles. Turns out by clicking the checkmark I'd un-checked it meaning there was no collection selected to save it to, so it didn't save. It shouldn't have let me do this and/or should have warned me.

  3. Provide support for searching for titles by abbreviation

    Many users are familiar with standard abbreviations for their titles, so allowing the search to be able to translate these abbreviations into relevant titles would be helpful to them.

  4. Option for "Export all citations"or "export selected citation"

    It takes time to manually download every citation, especially when you want to download a whole edition. An "Export all" and "Export selected citations" function would come in handy.

  7. Add additional bookcases to My Bookshelf

    64 seems an arbitrarily low number of journals to track--I'd like to be able to keep tabs on more.

  8. Increase the number of journals allowed on each shelf.

    There are currently only 4 journals allowed on each shelf. I have my shelves (and book cases) categorized and it would be nice to be able to fit all journals of interest in that specific category. Unlimited number of journals per shelf would be idea, but dramatically increasing the number of journals per shelf is needed.

  9. Allow a user to bulk transfer articles saved in the app

    This would be useful to backup articles found and saved in BrowZine in a service like DropBox, Mendeley or other service.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Add Yammer to "Social" options in sharing panel

    Yammer is an enterprise-level Social network tool with Groups functionality. It would be great to be able to share an article found on BrowZine to a group in Yammer, effectively providing a broadcast of an article to an engaged audience. The Yammer icon would ideally be one option in the Social section of the Share window.

    Integrate with ReadCube ... way better than Mendeley IMHO

  18. Make it possible to mark an article as "unread" again

    It's not frequent, but sometimes I'll see an article I really like, click it and get the "Not available yet, try later" error. I'd like to keep it unread so I remember to go back it later, but apparently "once clicked, always read."

    Not a big deal, just for your consideration. Thanks!

  19. Enable a user to have more than one library affiliation without logging out

    This is a fairly common scenario for faculty and students who are in Medicine, for example, and who may have access to both resources available at a hospital library as well as a university.

  20. to provide the possibility to make your selection of journals in a bookcase visible to other users of your institution

    As an instructor or librarian you can for instance show students easily which scientific journals are of interest for a particular course or educational program.
