Our digital magazine stand, Zinio, got a new look recently and it's going to make you read more digital magazines. From browsing to checking out, using Zinio is just a little better. Here's a quick look at some of things that have changed.
What's in your store?
Magazines are meant to be browsed. Think about how you see them displayed most of the time. Covers out, facing you from shelves. They're big and bold and colorful. Find something that catches your eye? Pick it up and look over it.
The new look echoes this experience of scanning magazines covers. You don't have to create an account or log in before you see what we have on our (virtual) shelves. Just go to our Zinio account, browse, and checkout the magazine you want to read.
Click and checkout
Account creation and logging in are also much easier now. Both of these actions are tied to checking out a magazine. When you click on a magazine you want to read, a menu comes up asking you to log in (or create an account).
With your information in hand, you're off to the races, the magazine reading races, that is (which actually sound kind of fun).
Read more magazines
Whether you're new to Zinio or haven't used it in a while, I encourage you to check out the new look. I find myself reading more magazines because it very easy to find them and check them out to my device.
Before you get started, remember that you need three things to use Zinio:
- A DPPL library card
- A library Zinio account
- A retail Zinio account (for Zinio.com and for their great apps)
Any questions? Check out our Zinio resource page for videos, instructions, and the complete list of magazines are available to you.
