Zinio eMagazines and OneClickdigital may have a new name, and a new look, but our patrons still have access to the same great content.
The Atlantic County Library System's collection of over 60 downloadable magazines is now named RBdigital Magazines. In addition, mobile device or tablet users can now browse, checkout, download, and read both collections in one place: the RBdigital app.

Q. What if I already have a login and password for Zinio or OneClickdigital?
A. Your Zinio and OneClickdigital logins are still active for the RBdigital collections and app. You do not need to create a new one.
Q. What will happen to the OneClickdigital app installed on my device?
A. The OneClickdigital app will be updated to the new RBdigital app either (1) automatically, if you have selected to have their apps update that way, or (2) manually, if triggered by patrons.
When the app is updated, you can log in with the same credentials used for the OneClickdigital app. The new RBdigital app will display your previous checkouts along with stored wishlists, holds, and history, but those checkouts will need to be downloaded again.
If you do not update to the new RBdigital app, the OneClickdigital app will still continue to work. You will be notified with the date when the old app will no longer be available, at which time patrons must update the app.
Q. What will happen to the Zinio for Libraries app installed on my device?
A. Starting August 1, a notification within the current Zinio for Libraries app will alert you to the availability of the new RBdigital app and give you the option to download it. The message will also show a countdown for when the Zinio for Libraries app will no longer function (currently planned for Sept. 30): “Zinio for Libraries has merged with RBdigital. In X time period [the counter appears here] you will be able to access your magazine collection only on RBdigital. Please download the new RBdigital app now by clicking here. Note that your username and password will remain the same." You will also see these buttons at the bottom of the message: “Update to New App,” “Remind Me Later” and “Don’t Ask Me Again.”
When you install the RBdigital app, you can log in with the same credentials used for the Zinio for Libraries app. At the end of the countdown (currently planned for Sept. 30), the Zinio for Libraries app will be locked and users will see a message encouraging them to download the new app: “Zinio for Libraries has merged with RBdigital. To access your magazine collection, please download the new RBdigital app by clicking here. Note that your username and password will remain the same.” At that point, you cannot access magazines without downloading the new app.
The Zinio for Libraries app will remain on the device until patrons delete it. When the Zinio for Libraries app is deleted, all downloaded magazines will be removed from their device, freeing up memory. The new RBdigital app will list all previous checkouts, but those checkouts will need to be downloaded again as needed.
