BrowZine in the News


We are pleased to share two recent reviews of BrowZine:

Featured Question

How can my library set up automatic holdings updates with SFX?

The SFX community has developed a process so that libraries using a self-hosted SFX system may send holdings data to Third Iron automatically.   To learn more about how you can automate your SFX holdings updates click here

Friendly Reminders

Keep your users up-to-date:  Use social media to ensure users have the most recent version of BrowZine!

If you are using TDNet, Journal Finder, or Alma, contact us and we will implement our new process that will automatically keep your BrowZine library in sync with your journal holdings data.
Using ALMA holdings with BrowZine?  Find a new update here.  
If you are not implementing automatic updates, we recommend updating your holdings at least twice a year, although you may send updates as frequently as you like.  If you have not sent us a new holdings report recently, please do so!  Directions for uploading your holdings report can be found here.

We look forward to sharing more updates about BrowZine in the next newsletter.  Please do not hesitate to contact us in the meantime if you have any questions.  Thank you for being our customer!
