Skyline College Library is excited to announce our new digital magazine service Flipster, available for free to all members of our Skyline College community. To begin reading, simply log in as you would to your email or Canvas account.
Flipster is an easy-to-use digital magazine platform sporting academic, popular and news magazines like Essence, Hot Rod, National Geographic, Education Week, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, Allure, Earth Island Journal, Poetry, Wired and YC (Young Children) and much more.
Faculty can share Flipster directly with students within Canvas or their syllabus by clicking on the share icon here and pasting the link. Or use this link to a one-minute video for how to use Flipster on a smartphone. After installing the phone app, select “Skyline Community College” and log in as you would to Canvas or campus email. Then, download the most recent issue of your favorite magazine.
Those of us parenting from home will also find Flipster useful for helping tweens and teens find recent, high quality sources for their schoolwork.
In the Fall, library staff collaborated to select magazine titles across disciplines that we felt best reflected the diversity and interests of our students, staff and faculty.
Do you have questions about Flipster or need a hand with access? Please contact a librarian using our Ask a Librarian chat service. We’re “open” 65 hours/week including Saturdays.
