Library patrons can now access their favorite digital magazines using Flipster® from EBSCO Information Services. Flipster is a next-generation magazine service that allows people to browse digital versions of the latest issues of popular magazines.
Users have access through Flipster for magazines such Fortune, Time, People, Scientific American, Sports Illustrated, Us Weekly and more so patrons have the option of accessing the content at the library or remotely. Magazines can be downloaded to Android™ phones and tablets, Apple® phones and tables, and Kindle Fire tablets for offline reading anytime, anywhere.
Flipster offers an easy, browse-able reading experience. Users can browse magazines by category as well as perform searches for specific periodicals. An online newsstand provides a carousel of the most recent issues, as well as a carousel of all issues allowing for quick access to magazines. The table of contents contains links for quick access to articles of interest and hotlinks within magazines are hyperlinked, opening in separate tabs when clicked. In addition, there is an option to zoom in and out for better readability.
Any current NExpress patron can use the service by going to NExpress in their browser (on their computer or mobile device) and logging into the catalog with their library user name and PIN. From there, you will find “Access Flipster” under the Digital Resources links on the left side of the screen. That one click will get you directly to the magazines available through NExpress.
