Zinio digital magazines available on your desktop, laptop or mobile device.
About the collection
The digital magazine collection is being shared between 4 library regions (PARL, AVRL, WCRL, ECRL). Each issue has unlimited borrowing and access, meaning multiple people can have the same issue of a magazine checked out at the same time. There are no restrictions, as is the case with Overdrive, as to how many users and can have an item checked out.
Users will need their library card number to gain access to the Zinio site no matter where they access from, library branches included, however a PIN number will not be required. You are not forced to enter your card number until you try to checkout a magazine or make an account. Once you have accessed the site you will then have to create an account. This is separate from your library account, similar to creating an Adobe or Overdrive ID.
You will have access to one year’s worth of back issues.
The collection can be accessed through a web browser from any device, there is also an app that can be downloaded and used with mobile devices. The app is free and available in most app stores.
