Flipster: Free Digital Magazines

for the UH Maui College Community

 

Flipster is a digital magazine service that makes it easy for you to read library subscribed magazines on your computer or mobile device. 

How to access Flipster: 

  1. You will need to login to Flipster every time you want to view or download a new magazine issue.

    We recommend that you either visit this page (bookmark it!) and click on the Flipster icon below for access, or use this shortened, persistent link (good for embedding in Laulima, sharing on social networks, email, SMS, etc.): http://bit.ly/uhmcflipster       
                                                                           
  2. If prompted, log-in with your UH username and password.

    You must be currently enrolled or employed at UHMC to access library resources. Library fines/fees above $10 will prevent access. Please call the library with any questions about the status of your UHMC library account (984-3233). 
     
  3. Once you have accessed the Flipster site you can browse available magazines. Currently, the library subscribes to ten magazine titles. If you like this service, let us know - we'd like to add more!
     
  4. You can then click on a magazine to either view an issue within your browser or download one to a mobile device.

Click on the menu icon (it may take awhile for the menu options to load) and keep scrolling to the bottom of your screen to find the "open in App" option.
