Quick link to RBdigital Collection  (Skip instructions for downloading.)

Welcome to the Great Lakes Digital Libraries Digital Magazine service!  Digital magazines can be accessed FREE of charge with your library card through the RBdigital app. Enjoy it from your computer, tablet, smartphone, or other smart device.  Great Lakes Digital magazines are always available. There is never a waiting list.  There is no checkout limit, no due dates, and you can keep each issue as long as you’d like.  Additionally, magazines can be enjoyed offline after being downloaded.

During the summer of 2017, Recorded Books, the company that brought us the Zinio app for downloading popular magazines for library users, is re-branding their product.  Their new app, RBdigital, is now available for download from both Google Play for Android users and iTunes for Mac or iPhone users.

If you were a regular Zinio user in the past, you may have already been prompted to download the new RBdigital app when you logged-on to your Zinio app.

If you have not yet sampled our digital magazine collection, you will want to first go to the RBDigital magazine collection in the Great Lakes Digital Library to create an account with your library card information.  You will find a link in the upper right corner of the screen that will walk you through the steps.  Once you have created an account and established a username and password, you are ready to use your app to check out digital copies of magazines.
If you have questions, you contact the PWPL reference desk at or 906-226-4312.
