Mobile Library Apps

Many of NSCC's Library Services databases have web sites that are optimized for viewing from any platform – including mobile viewing. Some require the use of apps instead. This page contains information about mobile apps for NSCC resources.

Mobile App for Flipster

Flipster is an EBSCO platform to search, read and download digital magazine subscriptions.

See the links below for information on the Flipster App.

Once you install the app on your device, you can download issues:

  1. Using your device’s browser, go to Flipster and tap on a magazine to read. The magazine opens in the mobile viewer.

  2. Tap the menu in the upper left hand corner and select Open in App. The Flipster app opens and downloads the magazine.

  3. Once the download has completed, the issue is available to read.


Q. Do the Flipster issues I download to the app expire?
A. Some select titles will expire and will need to be deleted from your tablet. These titles display an expired icon and appear grayed out when no longer available to read. Select weekly titles may expire in 2 days while select monthly or seasonal titles may expire in 7 days.


Q. After an issue expires, can I download it again?
A. Yes, simply return to the Flipster website and re-download the magazine.
