EBSCO Information Services(EBSCO) is introducing Flipster, which allows library patrons to browse the latest issues of quality digital versions of popular magazines, courtesy of their library.

Flipster provides users easy access to digital magazines for online browsing via their desktops or any mobile device. Flipster allows libraries to give their patrons the option of accessing the content at the library or remotely. They can also download magazines to their Android device, iPad, or iPad mini via a native app for offline reading.

Readers can browse magazines by category and perform searches for specific periodicals. An online newsstand provides a carousel of the most recent issues, as well as a carousel of all issues. The table of contents contains links to go to articles of interest and hotlinks within magazines are hyperlinked, opening in separate tabs when clicked.
