Just go to your local library's website and search for Zinio. I added a link for Edinburgh's libraries. You can also view this site http://www.wfhowes.co.uk/digital/digital-magazines-and-books/zinio
for more info.

Enjoy!

PS. On a related note - for all those BB haters out there - Zinio works brilliantly on a BB Playbook.

Excellent stuff I notice the economist isn't listed on my library site but is on zinio app. Does that mean that I can view it free?

I don't think that the Economist is available via the library. You can register via Zinio, but not sure what the subscription cost would be... Newsweek is free though.

kekvirag - where is your local library? i.e. where are you based?

I live in Ipswich, I checked the Suffolk County Library webpage, they don't have this OneClickDigital logo on the website, or I am just unable to find it. I have found a 'Search for e-books' section. Unfortunately no magazines, and quite limited selection in the categories I would be interested in. Anyway I registered for it... who knows maybe they will add some magazines or join this OneClickDigital later.

I tried looking for variations of the edinburgh link - e.g. http://rbdg.envionsoftware.com:8080/suffolk/zinio
but no joy.

As before, suggest you either phone up or just pop in to the library to ask if this is something they offer.

will,check this out!

There is 'Suffolk County Libraries' on the list. I have just registered, waiting for approval.[/quote]
Hi, can I ask you how you did this? I searched on the Suffolk County Library page but there were no results for Zinio, I couldn't find anything through Google either.
Thanks

Hi, if you read the my comments following that you already know, that the link I used for registering turned out to be only for librarians. So I am afraid I don't have an answer either. :(

Ok, thanks anyway, I will check with them, next time I return my books.

From what I have seen libraries choose the magazine titles they wish to have available for their members from a master list. I think I saw somewhere that there are over 300 titles on that list. Bucks libraries have a sub-set of 75 available titles, and for us, the Economist is one of the available titles.

Just signed up and unfortunately 'World Soccer' isn't on my library's list. Can someone check their account to see if its still available?

Edit - Found out it is but my library service doesn't subscribe to it. I've put in a request, so fingers crossed.

I'm now set up and running for Bucks Library Services, who knew all about it when I popped in an asked. Many thanks for posting this info - for me it counts as the best freebie I have ever seen on HUKD.

Did you get pointed at a link online or was it all in the library? I'm in South Bucks as far as you know would that make a difference?

My local library (Princes Risborough) runs occasional tutorial sessions on using the library's 'e' facilities. I attended one this morning and found it very useful - I took my own iPad in, and it was great to be told about and shown where to access any extra software needed to make the various applications work. As 'e' magazines, books and music all seem to need different softwares and applets to make them work, the on site 'hand-holding' saved me a deal of head scratching. It may be that I am particularly fortunate to live in an area where the Library Services go out of their way to help, but I doubt if Bucks is unique in this respect, and have posted this item in case it is of use to anyone else.

Derbyshire Libraries don't do this either... :-(

Surrey Libraries take part in the e-magazine scheme.

Scroll down to the Zinio part of the page

not all libraries use this unfortunately.
