Magazines On the Go - Zinio!

We have added a new option for e-content available for download - now we have magazines!  Zinio is a service by Recorded Books (a major company in the audiobook industry).  The library subscribes to 100  e-magazines, many of which we do not hold as print versions.

The service is simple to use.  If you are using Zinio from home, click on the link on our webpage, you will have to log on using your Edwardsville barcode and PIN.  On your first visit, you will have to set up an account using an email address and password.  Your account keeps track of which magazines you have checked out (5 maximum) at any particular time. If you don't finish reading something, you can go back to that issue later by logging in again.  Once you are done with an issue, you can delete it from your reading list.  If you download the Zinio reader to your electronic device (phone, e-reader or pc), you can download magazines and read them when not online.

At this point, we don't have access to back issues, but we hope to provide that service in the future.  As always, if you have any questions, give us call.
