Zinio for libraries provides Heights Libraries customers with access to 150 different magazine titles. This service is free using your library card. Once checked out, the magazines are yours to keep. The titles do not expire, so no returns are necessary!
Due to recent changes, using Zinio is now easier! All Zinio changes are currently in effect as of March 10, 2015.
One Account – The most exciting change is that new users only need to create ONE account to register for Zinio. There is no longer a need to create dual accounts between Zinio for Libraries and zinio.com.
Apps – New Zinio for Libraries Read Only Apps – Read magazines off-line by downloading a read only Zinio app on your device and logging in with your library card credentials. The new app will display only magazines you’ve checked out from the library.
* Apps are not yet available for iPhone and Kindle Fire HD/HDX devices, but are coming soon!
Your Collection – You can now view and manage your magazine collection (items you have checked out) from the Heights Zinio for Libraries collection page in your browser. You will also no longer be directed to Zinio.com when you check out a magazine. Account creation, search, browse, check out, and in browser reading functions are now all done on the Heights Zinio for Libraries page!
For additional information on these upgrades, please view the HELP section on the Heights Zinio for Library website: https://www.rbdigital.com/clevelandheightsoh/help
The Zinio improvements are very exciting, but there is more good news. OverDrive now also provides access to popular magazines and newspapers!
