Flipster Digital Magazines

Tue, August 28, 2018 2:00 PM

The Library has partnered with ASUCM to provide the UC Merced campus community with digital magazine subscriptions through Flipster. You can read your favorite magazines from anywhere and on any device.

Before you get started, make sure you are connected to the UC Merced campus wifi or VPN.


Visit Flipster using your web browser or download the Flipster app on any of your devices; the app is available on the Apple Store and Google Play Store. You can also check out an iPad mini configured with the Flipster app from the 2nd floor Library Services Desk.


To read magazines when off-campus, you’ll need to download the campus VPN first. Once you’re connected to the VPN, you can follow the instructions above for reading on-campus.


Prior to going reading from your device offline, you’ll need to use the Flipster app to download the magazine issue(s) you want to read. This will allow you to access the pre-downloaded content without an internet connection.
