Provide support for adding non-library subscribed titles to My Bookshelf
A researcher may have individual subscriptions available to them and/or they are interested only in receiving TOC alerts for a title the library as a whole may not subscribe to. Provide a way to put these titles as well on My Bookshelf for easy access to these titles as well.
This would be an excellent development. Would this mean you could put outside of Browzine journals onto the bookshelf - would be particularly useful or OA journals?
We pushed this back to "in review" as this was previously a 2019 objective but has been rescheduled for 2020. Thank you for your continued interest!

Any updates to this feature becoming available?
This feature would be great as a way of working with ILLs, not to mention PDA! Can't wait.

This would be a hugely useful feature! Please consider making this a priority. I can then get everything in one place!
@ Anonymous - Thanks for this suggestion. Enabling a link to the publisher site vs ILL might be an interesting option here to accommodate all use cases. Thanks!
@ ThomasG - This would only include journals that we can provide full metadata support. Additional content types would be out of scope for this enhancement.
@ Jill - This is in process but contains a number of different prerequisites so we cannot provide an estimate at this time. Stay tuned!

Do you have any news on the progress of this feature? It is one that I think would be very useful to our users. Along with them being able to see content beyond the end date of any subscribed journals.
Would that include Newsletters, such as Pinksheet, FirstWord, ScripIntelligence, PharmaLetter, ... Browzine is currently focused on Journals, but there is a lot more content out there which potentially could be integrated (e.g. via RSS etc)
It would be useful if you could access the publisher's website or a third party website. For example, to access my personal account of the Entomological Society of Am., I first need to login to their page, where they store a cookie that lets me access the journals website
