Zinio for Libraries has merged with RBdigital.
RB Digital Magazines - RB Digital Magazines, the world's largest newsstand, offers full-color digital magazines for anytime, anywhere reading on desktops, mobile devices, and apps. Your library's collection of popular digital magazines includes both new and backlist titles with no holds, no checkout periods, and no limits.
Starting August 1, a notification within the current Zinio for Libraries app will alert patrons to the availability of the new RBdigital app and give them the option to download it.
When patrons install the RBdigital app, they can log in with the same credentials used for the Zinio for Libraries app. At the end of the countdown (currently planned for Sept. 30), the Zinio for Libraries app will be locked and patrons will see a message encouraging them to download the new app. At that point, patrons cannot access magazines without downloading the new app.
