The Beaufort County Library System Introduces Flipster®, a New Way to Access Digital Magazines
~ The One-Stop-Shop for Digital Magazines Allows Library Patrons to Browse the Latest Issues of the Most Sought After Magazines ~
Patrons of the Beaufort County Library system 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.
The Beaufort County Library has both Flipster and hardcopy versions of magazines such as People, Ebony, Southern Living, Consumer Reports Buying Guide, and Time so patrons have the option of accessing the content at the library or remotely. Magazines can be downloaded to Android™ phones and tablets, Apple® phones and tablets, 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. 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.
Ray McBride, Director of the Beaufort County Library system states, “Flipster is an additional digital offering in line with the library system's strategic plan of continuing to offer new digital resources that are useful to the public."
