BrowZine journal viewer: a new way of keeping up to date with research

The BrowZine logo
A new resource, Browzine has been launched to make it easier for students and staff to keep up to date with new research developments in your field.
Browzine, found under the Online Resources tab on the Library homepage, is a web-based platform that allows you to browse through the most recent issues of most journals subscribed to by the CSU Library.

Some journals subscribed to by CSU may not be listed in BrowZine, the contents of BrowZine is limited to those publishers who have an agreement with BrowZine. To find out which publishers have an agreement for their content to be listed, you can find out on this webpage.

To search for journal articles you still need to utilise Primo Search or the journal database search facilities.
