Lean Library is a browser extension for off-campus library access.
How does it work?
If you visit a website the library has a license for, you will get a notification. Click to login and get access.
The browser extension displays its icon in your bookmarks bar. It works almost like a traffic light. If the icon is green, then you have access. If the material you’d like to use doesn’t seem accessible, Lean Library will automatically check for open access versions of the article.
The extension is not yet available for mobile devices
