Accessing Zinio

View our tutorial for details on how to set-up and use Zinio.

When first accessing Zinio, you will be asked to create an account with Recorded Books. Once you have selected a magazine, you will be asked to create a second account with Zinio. This is not the same account you created when first accessing the site but it is best to use the same email and password for both accounts.
