The NASA Goddard Library explored new technologies to provide mobile access to the Library's electronic journal subscriptions. After a 3-month trial by Library staff and a 4-month Goddard-wide trial, a recommendation was made to purchase BrowZine, a mobile content delivery app. The app was designed specifically for mobile phones and tablets for users to easily browse and read scholarly content. The talk will describe the Goddard trials, issues uncovered, and potential usefulness of the product.
