Help with Zinio

What is Zinio?

Zinio is an online newsstand that allows BCCLS card holders to check out magazines for free online. Unlike physical magazines, there are no limits on how many people can read one magazine at a time, which means no more waiting lists or due dates. Keep as many magazines as you want, for as long as you want.
