Discover Scholarly Journals and Stay Current in Your Reading

We are pleased to announce that Murdoch University Library is the first of its kind in Western Australia to subscribe to the popular journal browsing service, BrowZine.

Browzine allows academics, researchers and students to browse, read and follow thousands of journal titles subscribed to by the Library.

With BrowZine you can:
  •  Browse and read journals by subject, easily review tables of content and download full text articles
  • Stay current by creating a personal bookshelf of titles to follow and receiving new article notifications
  • Save complete articles to read off-line later or to export to services such as EndNote and DropBox
  • Easily access journals on the web or on any device using the Browzine app, staying up to date wherever you are.
You can get started today by visiting BrowZine or downloading the app from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store or Amazon App Store.

Please contact your Subject Librarian for further information.

Borrowing is now simpler and better

The University Library has expanded its borrowing so students can now borrow more for longer. Undergraduates and Graduate Diploma students can borrow twice as much for twice as long; 30 items for 12 weeks.

We’ve also increased borrowing limits for honours students and postgraduates, alumni, community and corporate members and reciprocal students.

Don’t forget, if the item you want is currently on loan to someone else, you can recall it and we’ll let you know when its available for you to pick up.

For more information, see our Borrowing page.
