Lean Library

Looking for electronic journal articles, reports or reviews you need to cite in your essay or presentation?  Or would you just like to get a notice when a book that you have found online is already available to you via the BUas Library? 

Then download the Lean Library Access browser extension: it will provide you with quick and simple access to digital content provided by your BUas Library wherever and whenever you decide to work. Using Lean Library Access means you spend less time searching for research material and more time studying.

After downloading, the extension will notify you when you are on a website that contains material that is available to you via the BUas Library. A single click will open the website where the publication can be accessed.  If the article you'd like is not yet part of the BUas Library collection, Lean Library Access will automatically check for open access versions of the article.

The extension is completely free and can be used wherever you are, it can be integrated in web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge and Safari.

For more information on how to install this extension, please check out this library guide. Questions about Lean Library? =>
