Third Iron Technical Documentation
BrowZine is designed to be a fast and intuitive service for researchers, students, clinicians and librarians to effectively browse, read and monitor their favorite scholarly journals.
Beneath its simplistic and streamlined interface, BrowZine contains a number of powerful features, linking structures and API's which the Third Iron development team is working to externalize so that enterprising librarians and programmers can deeply embed BrowZine services into their websites, discovery tools or other custom applications.
This site serves to document all of these functions in one place so that these types of users can quickly consult the needed documentation, get creative ideas about what is possible with these functions and get support from our team.
