Zinio is the Technology Platform for Digital Magazines, it converts magazines into digital products. London Libraries Consortium worked with Zinio to create RBdigital. I recently find out about it at my local library and thought it’s too great not to share!
What is RBdigital / London Libraries Consortium?
RBdigital allows you to access audio books and e-Magazines for free.
If you are a member of a London Library, you can go the website to create a free account using your card number.
How to download old previous versions of e-Magazines on RBDigitial?
Use the website, click the magazine you wish and add the previous editions wished to your list. I will synchronise with your devices.
