"Lean Library has massively simplified the process of getting access to library licensed e-resources off-campus for users who bypass our discovery tool and go straight to vendor websites, or who find content in search engines. The number of active users has surpassed our expectations and is growing month-by-month."

Confronting the Confusion: Streamlining Access to e-Resources

Numerous studies show that the ‘gateway’ role of the library is diminishing, leaving patrons with questions regarding accessing online services: Is the service that I’m trying to use licensed by my library? How do I get access? In this presentation, Johan Tilstra, CEO of Lean Library, will outline how thinking like a tech start-up can lead to a “just-in-time” solution to this issue. You’ll also get to hear about Irina Trapido’s, Electronic Resources Librarian at Stanford University, experience using Lean Library. Listen to it today
