Access over 400 magazines free and online…

From August 1st 2015 there will be a new state wide subscription to Zinio Digital Magazines for Libraries. The number of magazines available will increase to over 400 with a strong focus on Australian magazines.

Library customers who have been using Zinio through our Charles Sturt subscription will be required to create a New Account at the commencement of the new subscription. This will only be necessary once and we apologize for any inconvenience.

The functionality will remain the same; there will still be no need to put magazines on hold and there will be no limit to the number of issues that you can borrow.  All borrowed items can be kept indefinitely, which means no overdue fees. Any magazine issues which have already been downloaded will remain on your device.

However the new subscription will only start accruing back issues from August 1st.  Consequently, if you are particularly interested in back issues that are part of our current collection, please download these before the end of July 2015 if you wish to keep them.
