BrowZine Features

  1. Add link to See All in the banner text for journals without full-text to the present day

    We have holdings for titles in alternative databases that are not reflected as the best version in the BrowZine interface and are excluded from displaying to our patrons, as the default interface uses the publisher version rather than the database.

    We would like to update the "No Full Text available after [date]. Please click an article to explore additional access options" text to read, "No Full Text available after [date.] See All of your library's holdings" and include a link to the See All URL on the left-hand side. That link is easily missed by novice users.

    We believe that…

  3. enlarge the font for "Trouble? ..." text on LibKey format chooser page

    The text on the bottom right of the LibKey.io window that says "Trouble? See all content access options for this article" (displays for articles that are accessible) is quite small. Please either enlarge this font and/or enable ability to do so as an option.

  4. Remove the 4 journals limit per shelve

    Remove the limit of 4 journals per shelve on the bookshelves (too much white space on the right-hand part of the virtual shelve). I prefer the UI of the Browzine Library. Also improve the drag-and-drop journals implementation, the current 'select-drag-and-drop-into-slot' solution feels clumsy.

  5. Set a filter for current journals in any subject area

    Enable a filter on a URL to select only journals where the current issue is available. Some thing like https://browzine.com/libraries/956/subjects/57/bookcases/69?sort=title&view=current. This would highlight a library's range of up to date journals

  6. enable translation/dictionary while reading

    As a non-local English speaker, it's very useful to be allowed to select some text and instantly look up while reading.

  7. multiple subject widget

    As an e-resource librarian at Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University Saudi Arabia, we are using Browzine widgets on our libguide pages. but unfortunately, we can not select more than one subject for a widget. while the subject area covers more than one category.

    I suggest to please make multiple selections possible in the widget.
    Thanks

  8. Libkey.io and links

    It'd be preferable is the linking options in libkey.io (PDF, article link, and view in context) could open in a new tab. This way if a user has to lookup more than 1 article, they don't need to backtrack.

  11. Promote 'Recently Added to BrowZine' journals

    A widget to highlight journals newly available through the BrowZine interface would be of interest to our users. It would need to have an institutional filter for subscription titles and would also promote Open Access journals.

  13. Create a new top level taxonomy link for Language, Literature and Linguistics in the BrowZine Subject Area list

    Create a new top level taxonomy item for Language, Literature and Linguistics instead of putting it under Social Sciences

  14. Option to sort the articles so that new articles come at the top

    For open journals, there are usually hundreds of articles per issue and they are continuously updated. It would be useful if we could have an option to sort the articles by date (new to old, or something like that) rather than having to scroll all the way down.

  15. Enable "Universal Links" for BrowZine

    I'm suggesting that you enable Universal Links. On a device with the BrowZine app, a BrowZine Web (https) link to an article or journal would open in the app instead of the browser.

    A similar idea was posted and closed a few years ago (https://support.thirdiron.com/forums/181845-browzine-features/suggestions/6675132-create-persistent-links-to-open-within-browzine). But it was not fully implemented.

    More about this here: http://bula.us/SomeLinks.html.

  16. audio

    It would be great if there could be an audio option added for BrowZine articles. For example, it would be perfect if I could listen to BrowZine articles while jogging at the gym.

  18. OpenAthens validation in app

    In the BrowZine app new users at our institution are prompted with OpenAthens login. For some reason wrong username and password combinations are accepted.

    Suggestion 1: validate Openathens credentials. Or even better: Suggestion 2: allow for OpenAthens personalisation:

  19. Add Journal Month to Issue #'s

    Have ever considered adding months of the issues to the issue numbers in the list of issues on the left hand side? Most journals are citing only month and year now and it's just an extra steps to convert issue numbers in Browzine to the month in the citations.

  20. Enable support for abstract-only "articles"

    Some publications include links not out to full text but to abstracts, perhaps highlighting presentations at recent conferences or announcing future papers, etc. Currently BrowZine ignores these as "non-articles" but knowing about these could be beneficial to some researchers in the BrowZine environment such as linking to abstracts like this from JCO:

    https://ascopubs.org/doi/abs/10.1200/JCO.2019.37.4_suppl.3
