Students and faculty access a digital collection of magazines using Flipster® from EBSCO Information Services. Flipster is a magazine service that allows LIU students and faculty access to digital issues of recent popular magazines.

Publications can be downloaded to Android™ phones and tablets, Apple® iPhones and iPads, and Kindle Fire for offline reading anytime, anywhere.

Flipster offers an easy, browse-able reading experience. Users can peruse magazines by category, as well as search for specific titles. An online newsstand provides a carousel of the most recent issues, as well as back issues, allowing for easy and seamless access. A Table of Contents contains links for the quick retrieval of articles and within magazines, users will find additional embedded resources of dynamic content. There is an option to zoom in and out of text for enhanced readability.
