Zinio’s eMagazines Merging with RBDigital
Zinio for Libraries, our collection of digital magazines, is merging with RBDigital. Current Zinio users will be able to access all their subscriptions through the RBDigital app. Usernames and passwords will remain the same. The Zinio app will no longer be available after midnight on December 11.
The Zinio app has been notifying users since summer that the services will be merging. The message reads “Zinio for Libraries has merged with RBdigital. In 1 week you will only be able to access your magazine collection on RBdigital.” If you see this message, tap the Update to New App button to download RBDigital. You must download and install RBDigital in order to begin using it.
On December 11, the Zinio for Libraries app will no longer function. It will remain on the device until patrons delete it. When the Zinio for Libraries app is deleted, all downloaded magazines will be removed from the device, freeing up memory. The new RBdigital app will have all previous checkouts available, but those checkouts will need to be downloaded
again, as needed.
