LION Zinio Digital Magazine Collection

Welcome to Zinio, the newest digital offering from the library!  This page will tell you all about Zinio and walk you through the sign up process.

What is Zinio?

·        Manage your collection – Using the personal account you will create, you will have the opportunity to check out the magazines you choose and read them instantly on your computer, or access the content on a portable media device, such as a smart phone, tablet, or color e-reader!  (Note: viewing options, including the ability to download or view the content while online may differ based on the device and/or publisher)

Explore Zinio

To view LION’s Zinio collection, go to:

Zinio can also be accessed from the Durham Library home page and the online library catalog.


**If you are accessing Zinio on a mobile device like an iPad, there is a Zinio App for you to download**


Start by clicking “Create New Account” on the top right.


Enter your 14 digit Patron Library Card Number in the box and click “Next.”


Enter the requested information, and then click “Create Account.”

(Password must have at least 7 characters & include letters and numbers)


Now you are logged in to LION Zinio.  Start by clicking “Browse Magazines.”


Now, there is ONE MORE STEP to signing up!  But first you need to find a magazine to checkout.  Here is the screen we see now:


For my instructions, I am going to check out 100 Best Cookies.  You can pick any magazine you want.  Underneath the magazine click on “Checkout Now,” which I’ve put a red arrow next to.


You’ll get a confirmation that you have checked the magazine out.  Click “Start Reading” and we’ll do our last set up step.


Click “Sign Up” up at the top.  DO NOT click “New User? Sign up here,” because it brings you to the wrong page.


Enter your information.  Be sure that you use the SAME EMAIL ADDRESS that you used in the first sign up.


Now click “Go to Library” to start reading your magazine.


There is my magazine!  Click directly on the cover to start reading.


After a short loading page, your magazine comes up, along with a handy tutorial on the left on how to navigate the magazine.

If you need further help, please ask a librarian!
