What is my Digital Library?

Your Digital Library stores all of the digital publications you have saved or purchased. When you are logged into the MagCloud website, you can access your Digital Library through the Quick Links arrow next to your name at the top of any page, allowing you to read your publications in the MagCloud Web Viewer or download them as a PDF version.

How do I download or read a digital version I've already purchased?

On the MagCloud website, you can read online or download a PDF of the digital publications you previously purchased from your Digital Library.

What is the MagCloud web viewer?

The MagCloud web viewer allows online reading of digital publications on any web-enabled device. It allows readers to page forward and back, rotate, zoom in and out, and enter full screen mode when viewing a digital publication. Free digital publications can be read directly from the MagCloud website by clicking the “Read Now” button. Paid digital publications longer than 8 pages will have the first three pages and back cover available for preview on the MagCloud website, while publications less than 8 pages will only have the cover available, and once the publication is purchased it will be available for online reading in it’s entirety. The web viewer can also be launched from your own website by embedding one of the badges available on your Promote page.

What's the difference between MagCloud's web viewer and a standard PDF reader?

The MagCloud web viewer is optimized for online reading and sharing of MagCloud digital versions within most browsers, without requiring you to download a PDF file to your computer.

How can I view a digital version on my computer?

If you are online, you can view digital publications in the MagCloud web viewer in most browsers. If you have downloaded a PDF version of a publication to your desktop, all you need is a standard PDF reader to view the PDF, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader.

How can I view a digital version on my iOS device?

On an iPad or iPhone running iOS 5.0 and higher you can also read publications in Safari using the MagCloud web viewer. Just click the Read Now button on any publication page or in your Digital Library, just as you would on a laptop or computer.

  6. Your MagCloud digital version should then open in the program you selected.
  7. Read and enjoy!
