Welcome to our Browzine Web tutorial. Browzine is an application that lists our electronic journals in a web-friendly format. 

Users can find journals by searching by title or ISSN number, or browsing by subject.

Results with red icons are categories of subjects, while blue icons are journals. Articles can be accessed by clicking on journal titles and then articles titles listed within the issue listed.

Click the arrows at the bottom to progress through the tutorial.

Browzine Web easily retrieves electronic journals and articles for library users. However, it doesn't always show the full extent of our e-journal or print collection.

For example, perform a search for the journal Labour Economics.

Note that no results are retrieved for this item. Why is this? The reason is that Browzine only links to journals that have a DOI (Direct Object Identifier) number for information placed online.Not all journals have a DOI number.
