Search Tips and Tricks

BrowZine primarily displays journals which the University of Iowa has currently or previously subscribed. However, you may occasionally find issues where we don't have the most current access. Don't worry! Request it via InterLibrary Loan

When using BrowZine, think big picture! Be flexible in where you think a journal should be classified and don't hesitate to browse or search.

Viewing the table of contents a few editions of a journal can give a really good sense of the journal's usefulness to your academic needs. If it is useful, put the journal on your bookshelf! This will also help you stay current with the latest publications of your selected journals.
