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

Link: https://browzine.com/libraries/38/subjects 

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.

Dropbox

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

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.
