Area libraries offer new way to access digital magazines

Patrons of the libraries in Osage County 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.

Through Flipster, patrons have access to magazines such People, Time, Sew News, Sports Illustrated, Real Simple, Fortune, Time, Cicada, J-14, Us Weekly and more, so patrons have the option of accessing the content at the library or remotely. Magazines can be downloaded to phones and tablets for offline reading anytime, anywhere.

Users can browse magazines by category as well as perform searches for specific periodicals. An online newsstand provides a carousel of the most recent issues, as well as a carousel of all issues allowing for quick access to magazines. 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.

Any current NExpress patron can use the service by visiting in a web browser and logging into the catalog with their library user name and PIN. From there, find “Access Flipster” under the “Digital Sources” links on the left side of the screen. That one click will get you directly to the magazines available through NExpress.

Contact the Osage City Public Library at 785-528-3727, or 515 Main St., Osage City, or your local library to learn more about accessing the library’s digital magazines through Flipster.
