Located in Baltimore, Maryland, Morgan State University offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in business, engineering, education, architecture, hospitality management, social work and more. While Morgan State is a historically black institution, it now serves students of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. With a current enrollment of nearly 7,000 students, the University aims to empower and prepare “high-quality, diverse graduates to lead the world.” To support the scholarly research of both students and faculty, the institution’s Earl S. Richardson Library maintains an impressive collection of 400,000 books, 1,900 periodicals and serials, and more than 100 databases.

In 2014, in response to a growing need for mobile-friendly resources, the Richardson Library began a subscription to Flipster®, EBSCO’s online digital magazine solution. After initially subscribing to only a handful of titles, the Library now offers digital access to 28 magazines including Forbes, Bloomberg Business Week, Time, iPhone Life, Organic Gardening, The Atlantic and The Stanford Social Innovation Review.

Since the initial launch, students and faculty members have been reading magazines on Flipster not only for leisure, but also to stay abreast of the latest news and developments in their fields. With the addition of five new online programs this fall, library leaders expect to see an increase in magazine use as many faculty members are already planning to assign class readings that require access to Flipster.
