Participants will be exploring two e-journal discovery products the Auraria Library is trialing until June 8, 2021:

  • BrowZine: could makes it easier for you to browse, search, and save lists of journals and articles.
  • LibKey: could makes it easier for you to access journal articles with one-click from the library’s online catalog search.

If selected, you’ll test various features of these products via Zoom sessions with library staff and provide your feedback. Easy!

Discovering services to improve your experience is just one way the Auraria Library works to fulfill its mission of supporting the diverse populations of students, faculty, and staff on the Auraria Campus.
