EBSCO Rolls Out Digital Magazine Reader

EBSCO Information Services introduced the Flipster digital magazine solution for libraries, allowing patrons to access issues of periodicals via Flipster’s browser-based desktop reader or mobile app while at the library. Libraries can also choose to give patrons remote access to the content and the ability to download magazines to their mobile devices for offline reading.

Flipster’s features include browsing by category, a carousel of most recent issues, linked tables of contents in the magazines, and zooming in and out on articles for easy readability.

“By providing a high quality digital reading experience for library patrons … Flipster offers a unique approach for experiencing content in popular magazines as well as extending library services in an exciting new way,” says Michael Laddin, EBSCO’s SVP for product management. “Flipster complements EBSCO’s full-text databases (e.g., MasterFILE, MAS, Business Source, etc.) which enable patrons to research topics of interest to them.”
