Magazines are Now Available from eBCCLS: Go Check Them Out!

10 Mar

At the end of last year our collection of digital periodicals moved from being available from RBDigital to now being available as part of the eBCCLS collection. That means Hoboken Library Patrons can use the Libby or Overdrive App they have been using for ebooks and digital audiobooks for periodicals as well now. I love the convenience of having one less app cluttering my phone and they are perfect when I want something quick to read on a lunch break.

Flipping through magazines here is a bit different if you are only used to viewing articles from research databases. You aren’t simply viewing pdfs of the articles, instead you get a more authentic experience of paging casually through your favorite magazine. You can zoom in on articles that are of interest to you. Magazines can be checked out for two weeks, but there are no limits on the number of magazines you can check out and it does not affect your checkout limit for ebooks. Limited back issues are also available.

Popular titles available from the collection include The Economist, National Geographic, US Weekly, The New Yorker, Newsweek, and Cooks Illustrated. Plus you’ll find new favorites such as MollieMakes a lifestyle and craft magazine which includes great craft ideas, the inside scoop on top crafters, and much more. I enjoy having access to not just American periodicals, but ones from around the world. For the International Fashionista you can view style magazines from around the globe such as Vogue Australia, Elle Quebec, Harper’s Bazaar India, and Glamour South Africa and many, many more.

What are your favorite magazines from the eBCCLS collection? Share them in our comments!
