The library has just renewed our RBdigital online magazine subscriptions for 2020. This provides us with a good opportunity to review our collection and look at what new magazines are on offer. Unfortunately, there’s always some cancellations too – either by us (due to performance), by RBdigital (which is beyond our control) or because they are no longer being published.
First up, this year’s new magazines include popular magazines Australian House and Garden, Period Living and New Zealand Property Investor, as well as BBC Sky at Night, Motorcycle Trader, New Idea and staff pick, The Hollywood Reporter. All are available to read and download now, and come with a year’s worth of back issues.
Titles that have gone this year are Bass Player, Kung Fu Tai Chi, Popshot Journal and That’s Life; three magazines that have ceased publication: Smith Journal, Web Designer and National Geographic Traveller ; and three that now available to read through Pressreader: NZ Weddings, New York magazine and Town and Country UK.
If you love magazines and haven’t used RBdigital before then it is well worth a look! RBdigital provides us with lots of magazines that you can read for free, on your computer or in the RBdigital app on your tablet or phone. You can also download magazines to your device to read offline – and keep them forever! You can find the RBdigital homepage through our eLibrary. There’s a helpful userguide to get you started, all you’ll need is your library card and PIN number. The RBdigital app is available to download for free from the Google Play or Apple stores.
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.
