Recommend Lean Library

Let's get acquainted

We know that gaining access to licensed, scholarly articles, eBooks, and content can be a frustrating and time-consuming process. That's why we created a browser extension that puts the content you need directly into your workflow.

How does it work?

We work with your library's systems to help you benefit from library services while researching off campus.

With Lean Library you can...

  • Say goodbye to sign in prompts and authentication barriers. Log in one time at the beginning of your session and enjoy seamless access.
  • Put your library into your search bar. Whether you’re using Google, a direct link, or another path – you’ll have seamless access to your library’s entire collection of licensed content.
  • Stay connected. Learn about library services and content offerings via custom messages.
  • Use your favorite browser. The extension works on all the major ones.
  • Discover alternative routes to content. Get recommendations to full-text articles and eBooks when you reach access barriers. We'll even provide open access options, when available.
  • Protect your privacy. We’ll never ask for your personal information. The extension collects minimal, anonymous data to ensure it's working as intended. So, hello user #23241! (For additional info, see our Privacy Commitment Statement.)
