HELP with Zinio

You will need to login twice (technically, for 2 different accounts): the first is to access the magazine titles for which the Library has paid a subscription; the second is for the Zinio website which must be used to actually view the titles. You may find it easiest to use the same email and password for both logins (the Library portal and the Zinio.com website).
