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.
Update: At this time, we continue to keep this "under review" but it is not on our near term roadmap as it once was in 2020. We may return to this at some point in the future however, so leaving it as "under review" rather than completely closing it. I appreciate the continued interest in this feature!

Still need this...any update John? was pushed to 2020, now it's 2022
Thanks for all you do!
I get that libkey is all focused on what we do have, but selling Browzine to faculty and students as a central monitoring / one stop service, when we can't have subscriptions to everything, ties our hands and makes us look like we chose an incomplete product
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
