Off-site and mobile device access to web-based resources is available for current Ochsner faculty, students, staff, and employees using the following methods.


BrowZine is an app for personal mobile devices to access journals from the Ochsner Medical Library. Use BrowZine for off-site and on-site mobile access to full-text articles from journals in our collection.

  1. Download the free BrowZine app to your iOS device or Android device.
  2. Open the BrowZine app and using search, locate, then select “Ochsner Medical Library.”
  3. Enter your Ochsner/Epic username and password.

This will “pair” your device with our journal subscription for access to full-text articles. You may also want to register a personal account to get notifications, save articles, and create a bookshelf with just your frequently accessed journals.
