Lean Library Overview

Lean Library is a browser plug-in that seamlessly brings our library resources into your workflow. Whether you're conducting research on or off-campus, Lean Library will help you gain easier access to the information you need.



How Lean Library works

The extension works with our library to automatically identify e-resources we subscribe to.

If you are off campus or accessing through a off-campus network, you may be prompted to log in with your key. Once you are logged in or connect back the campus network (VPN included), the extension icon will glow green if the library provides access.

If the content you'd like to use doesn't seem accessible, the extension will automatically check for open-access versions of the article or provide a link to interlibrary loan.
