Here are some tips to help you successfully borrow and download magazines through Zinio. As with most eResources, all libraries in Allegheny County and in the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh share resources. When going to the Zinio site, the top of the page will read, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.

Here is a list of some changes to the listing of magazines beginning in 2015 that will be available through Zinio.
Creating your account:
- You will need to create a library Zinio account and a Zinio.com account. (If you already have a Zinio.com account you can use that one, but you may need to log out of Zinio.com – so you can tie your existing account to your library account. You will then be able to see your library and purchased magazines together.)
- The email address used to create your library Zinio account and your Zinio.com account need to be the same. Using the same password is recommended, but they can differ.
Browsing the collection:
- When browsing for additional titles in the library’s Zinio collection, click the ‘Return to Library Collection’ tab in your browser.
- You can’t search the library’s Zinio collection within the Zinio app. You must make your selections on the Library’s Zinio site before viewing the magazine in the app.
