Our Favorite Library Apps

Our Favorite Library Apps

Besides social media apps (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) that you use to follow @uolibraries, did you know there are a bunch of apps to help you use UO Libraries and its resources?

Here are some of our favorites:



BrowZine allows you to discover and follow journals in your field by subject or title. Fill a virtual bookshelf with journals you read and create alerts to new issues. Read and save individual articles or share them through email, citation management programs, or social media.

Bluefire Reader / Adobe Digital Editions / Libby by OverDrive


E-reader apps that accommodate many types of ebooks. NOTE: Libby also allows you to listen to audiobooks and is available at the Eugene Public Library.


[Rumor is that we’re getting this, so this is a placeholder for later] 



Access the UO Learning Management System (LMS) from your mobile device.



Apps used by many public libraries, including in Eugene, which all you to stream movies & music.

UOregon Mobile


The UO Mobile app allows you to access UO information from your mobile device.

Cisco AnyConnect


Cisco AnyConnect connects you to the campus network through a VPN so you can access library subscription materials such as databases.

EndNote / Mendeley / Zotero 


Citation management tools have apps that allow you to access your research on mobile devices. We prefer Zotero's mobile site over the available 3rd party apps.
