Maybe I'm doing something wrong?
Was that on the Magazines or the Newspapers? I can use the Magazines but newspapers doesn't work for me anymore

I was in the library last week and saw a sign saying that zinio access would be withdrawn in a number of weeks. It'll be replaced by something else.

I got in there, stuck in an 8 digit code, which was denied, then stuck a 0 in front of it and got in.

Thanks op!

I can access magazines through Zinio, but failed to access the newspapers. Followed link in OP, tried random 7 digits, 8 digits, library card number preceded by 0.

Oh no! Thats pretty much the best bargain ever. Do you know what the replacement will be?

I'm having luck with 8 digit numbers starting with 3. I have tried about 10 and they have all worked.

Thanks
I was able to get in with a "random" 8 digit number starting with a zero. I must've tried 10x with true random numbers (and my proper Library ID number) but wasnt able. Thanks for the tip
Pity about Zinio as the interface on tablets was great. Will ask the Library what it will be substituted with

I wrote to the librariesireland.ie about this to ask if it was the case and they said that it's not true, there are no plans to change Zinio access.

Maybe you saw an old poster from last year when they changed the Zinio service and made it nationwide. People had to delete their old accounts and make news ones on the librariesireland.ie site.

Hopefully that's the case anyway as there's so much great content for free on that service now.

Any time I try to read a magazine, it shows the first page, when I try to go to the next page, it just goes back to the home page? Anyone else seeing this?

Exact same for me - I've tried it with Chrome and IE on 2 different windows computers + in an incognito tab. Same for Chrome on Android. Just before it goes back to the home page there a little animation of a rectangle shrinking and moving to the top of the page.

Works for me in Firefox.
Try clicking on the next page icon on the bottom of the page beside the printer icon.
