Search tools


BrowZine is a great way to browse journals and keep up-to-date with new research in your area of study.  You can create a personal account in order to add your favourite journals to your Bookshelf and save articles to read later. It is not designed for article searching so you should still go to LibrarySearch when you want to search for content.
