Create a personal bookshelf of favorite journals, and articles may be synced up with Zotero, Dropbox or Mendeley. To download, search for “BrowZine” in the App Store or Google play and get the app; when initially launching BrowZine, select WFU and subject area Biomedical and Health Sciences.

Docphin - use from your desktop and/or from iPhone/iPad or Android devices. Select your favorite journals (suggestions are based on specialty, but you can search for any), and it will give you the table of contents with links to individual articles. Select Wake Forest University when you register and it will link to our subscribed journals. Will prompt you for medctr credentials off-campus.
