We have just renewed our RBdigital magazine subscriptions for 2018. We always use this time as an opportunity to review our collection and look at what new magazines are on offer. There’s always some cancellations too – either by us (due to performance), or by RBdigital as sometimes magazines are no longer available to renew (which is beyond our control).
This year you can expect to see five new magazines – UK House and Garden; Australian Men’s Fitness; Minecraft World, W magazine and New Zealand’s Metro magazine.
The titles that are no longer available are – Australian Rolling Stone; Australian Metro; Girlfriend; Horrible Histories, Vanity Fair and Renegade Collective.
All changes will kick off from March 1st, so expect to see the new magazines from then. All back issues of the cancelled magazines will still be available to read and download for a while after that date.
If you haven’t used RBdigital before then now is the time! They provide us with lots magazines that you can read for free and if you download them to your device you can keep them forever. You can find the RBdigital homepage in our elibrary or through our Mygateway pages. There’s a helpful userguide to get you started, all you’ll need is your library card. The RBdigital app is available to download for free from the Play or Apple stores and it allows you to read magazines offline. So check it out and if you need any help, pop in to your local library for assistance or fill out our technical support form to put you in touch with our elibrary team.
