Included below are available apps that extend upon our e-resource provision by improving services for mobile devices.


BrowZine Logo

BrowZine is an e-journal browsing service that allows our journal collection to be browsed in an easy and intuitive way on mobile devices. It is also available as a web service called BrowZine Web.

It offers a simple entry point to view journal titles, either by title search or by browsing titles by subject category; the ability to create your own bookshelf of regularly read titles; the option to save articles for later offline reading; receive notification of new articles; and options to export content to bibliographic management tools.

The majority of our scholarly journal content is available in BrowZine, with an emphasis on current content. Archival access is generally available back to 2005, with ongoing developments to extend this.

Please contact the E-resources team if you require any further information or assistance with Browzine.

FT Apps

FT Apps

As part of UCL’s Premium Digital subscription to the Financial Times, users can benefit from mobile and tablet access via the FT apps: the FT Web App for iPad and iPhone, the FT Android App, and the FT Windows 8 App.

For the FT Web App for iPad and iPhone simply open the browser on your iPad/iPhone and navigate to http://app.ft.com. To enjoy full access even when you are offline, add the app to your home screen by tapping the share button and select the ‘Add to the Home Screen’ icon.

The FT Android App can be downloaded instantly from Google Play either on your device or from your desktop.

The FT Windows 8 App can be downloaded from the Windows Store.

The FT apps are all free to download and access to FT content is possible from up to 5 different devices at any time. They are fully integrated into the FT digital subscription so all you need to do is log in using your existing FT username and password to begin reading - these are the same username and password of the account you created when you first accessed the FT via the Library website and were asked to register.

More information about the FT apps is available.

Please note – The FT requires that users revalidate their accounts every 90 days via UCL’s Single Sign-on screen; this will happen automatically if you access the FT via Explore at least once every 90 days. However, you can manually revalidate your account. Once the revalidation has been completed, on your FT app, please refresh your account settings by logging out and logging back in.
