ZINIO hits library digital newsstand
June 10, 2014
Zinio for Libraries was launched recently by the Grand County Library District. This county-wide, digital magazine service was made possible through a generous donation from Sri and Jan Bonthu of Craig, Colo., to the Friends of the Grand County Library. Awarded Best New Database of 2012 by Library Journal, Zinio is the world's largest newsstand, offering multi-user access to popular publications. Through http://www.gcld.org, Grand County Library District patrons now have unlimited access to complete digital magazines which can easily be viewed on most internet-enabled devices inside or outside of the library. Zinio's unique technology digitally recreates a magazine page for page, including full color pictures, intuitive navigation, key word article search and interactive elements such as audio and video. There are no holds, checkout periods or maximum quantities. The Economist, Outside, 5280 Magazine, Rolling Stone and Martha Stewart Living are just a few of the popular titles available. For more information on how to access Zinio, please see a library staff member at any Grand County Library or go to http://www.gcld.org/zinio.
