New additions to our Zinio eMagazines

Every year we renew our Zinio subscriptions.  And every year we take this as an opportunity to look at the magazines you’re reading, what’s popular and what’s not. It’s that time of year now!  As a result, we’ve made some changes to the titles you’ll find in Zinio.

Luckily for us there were heaps of new magazines to choose from this year.  Some of the new magazines you’ll now find in Zinio are:
New Zealand Woman’s Weekly | The Listener | Architectural Digest | Elle UK | Vogue UK | BBC Music | Mojo | New Philosopher | North & South | Attitude | Spoke | Wheels | Your house and garden.

There are a few titles we decided to switch to a different version in Zinio – for example we’ll now be getting the US edition of New Scientist and the NZ version of Australian Woman’s Weekly and Woman’s Day. Also, there will be more copies of our most popular magazine The Economist!

There are also some magazines we’ve discontinued and you’ll no longer find in Zinio – some we chose to stop due to low usage and some have been removed by the publishers, which is beyond our control.  Fortunately a handful of ceased magazines can now be found in PressReader (our other online eMagazine resource): you’ll find CuisineNZ House and Garden, NZ Life and LeisureNZ Gardener and Forbes there now, all you need are your library card details to read them.

Alternatively, take a look about in Zinio as there are plenty of titles to choose from and hopefully something for everyone.

If you haven’t used Zinio before now would be a great time to start.  Zinio allows you to read the latest magazines (some sooner than we get the actual magazine!) as it appears in print, for free of charge, either in the browser on your PC or downloaded to a tablet or mobile device.  All you need is a library card!  You can find Zinio in our eLibrary or through Mygateway.info, where you’ll also find instructions for getting started and some useful FAQs.  Or pop in to your local library for a demo or to ask staff for assistance.
