Patrons of Seneca Free Library can now access their favorite digital magazines using Flipster® from EBSCO Information Services.
Flipster is a next-generation magazine service that allows people to browse digital versions of the latest issues of popular magazines, courtesy of the library.
Our patrons have access through Flipster for magazines such Fortune, Time, People, Scientific
American, Sports Illustrated, Us Weekly and more so you have the option of accessing the content at
the library or remotely. Magazines can be downloaded to Android™ phones and tablets, Apple® phones
and tables, and Kindle Fire tablets for offline reading anytime, anywhere.
Flipster offers an easy, browse-able reading experience. Users can browse magazines by category as well
as perform searches for specific periodicals. An online newsstand provides a carousel of the most recent
issues, as well as a carousel of all issues allowing for quick access to magazines. The table of contents
contains links for quick access to articles of interest and hotlinks within magazines are hyperlinked,
opening in separate tabs when clicked. In addition, there is an option to zoom in and out for better readability.
Any current NExpress patron can use the service by going to http://catalog.nexpresslibrary.org in their
browser (on their computer or mobile device) and logging into the catalog with their library user name
and PIN. From there, you will find “Access Flipster” under the Digital Resources links on the left side of
the screen. That one click will get you directly to the magazines available through NExpress.
This is new as of May 1. More titles will be added in time, as individual libraries have time to shop for magazines.
