In addition, BrowZine keeps track of your favorite journals making it easy to keep up with new developments in your field. It also can allow you to easily see similar titles to the ones you are familiar with in order to broaden your knowledge of related scholarly literature. Specific benefits of the BrowZine platform includes the ability to:

Expert perspective on this resource is offered by Professor Gerry Shea, liaison to the College of Human Development, Culture and Media noted that: “The great thing about BrowZine is it makes it easy for you to use your phone to access thousands of academic journals. BrowZine is the best way to find academic journals available from the Seton Hall University Libraries!”
The Seton Hall University Libraries contain numerous articles, books, reports, and primary sources that cover the span of the American Presidency from 1789 through the present day. Our electronic resources are accessible both on-campus and remotely alike.
A good place to start is our Presidential Research Library Guide created by Assistant Dean for Public Services, Lisa De Luca that can be accessed here:
While that link is a recommended starting place for presidential history within this country, any search can be modified for individual aspects of the office, historical legacy, individual figures from George Washington to Joseph Biden and all in-between which can be found through the Seton Hall University Libraries catalog using the keyword – “President*” to begin your query:
Did you know the archives holds the diary of Bernard Shanley, advisor to President Eisenhower? This diary provides an incredibly detailed account of the president’s activities and meetings. It sheds particular light on the relationship between Joseph McCarthy and President Eisenhower. The 400+ page diary has been completely digitized, thanks to a grant from the National Archives, and can be accessed through the Shanley Collection Finding Aid. Parts of the collection that have not been digitized can be seen in the Special Collections Reading Room.
We also provide information related to the broader of Political Science maintained by Professor Michael Murphy. Our specialized Library Guide maintained by Professor Murphy covers civil-based and leadership subject matter in broader detail and is readily available to our research community.
