RBdigital Information

Lakeshores Library System is proud to present RBdigital, an online platform for reading your favorite magazines. With Zinio, you  can log in with your library card and access 100 popular magazine titles.

What is RBdigital??

RBdigital is a service that allows library patrons to read many of their favorite magazines on a computer or on their favorite e-reader or smartphone. Patrons must first set up a RBdigital library account, and then a  viewer account. The RBdigital library account allows them to gain access to the LLS collection of magazine titles. The RBdigital viewer account is used to access & read the magazine issues they choose.

How do patrons set up their accounts?

There are a couple of steps:

  1. To view the LLS magazine collection, visit https://www.rbdigital.com/lakeshoreswi/zinio. Patrons may create their content account immediately, or just find a magazine issue they like and click on it, which will prompt them to log in or create an account. To create an account, patrons must enter an email address and their library barcode and click “Create Account”. Once this is complete he/she will then be able to browse & select issues of magazines from the library collection page (https://www.rbdigital.com/lakeshoreswi/zinio ). They will need to come back to this page whenever they want new content, so consider putting a direct link on your library website.
  2. Patrons must then create a RBdigital viewer account. This is the account they use to read their magazines. To create the viewer account, they must go to https://www.zinio.com/account/login.jsp and click “sign in / register”. From there, they’ll work through a quick series of web forms to create their account. Once this step is done, they will be able to access their magazine issues.

AN IMPORTANT TIP: You should use the same email address/password for each RBdigital account (that is, for BOTH your RBdigital library account and RBdigital viewer account).

Can I use an ereader or tablet to view my RBdigital magazines?

Yes. RBdigital apps are available for Apple, Android, and most other major ereaders. Simply search for “RBdigital” in the app store related to your device (examples: Apple iTunes Store, Google Marketplace). Users of the Kindle Fire can find directions to get RBdigital on their device by visiting this page.
