When patrons install the RBdigital app, they can log in with the same credentials used for the Zinio for Libraries app. At the end of the countdown (currently planned for Sept. 30), the Zinio for Libraries app will be locked and patrons will see a message encouraging them to download the new app. At that point, patrons cannot access magazines without downloading the new app.
