Lean Library provides one click access to UON Library’s subscription content and Open Access full text journal articles and eBooks wherever users are located, including off campus. It does this by alerting the user to available content when they are searching in Google Scholar, Google, publisher web sites, Amazon, etc., and enables the user to login and access the content.
Staff need to download the plugin on your PC or laptop.
Students using their own personal laptops on campus need to download the plugin.
Library and Student Labs have the plugin loaded and available.
Download the Lean Library browser extension on your own laptop or PC, and let it automatically help you access the resources you need wherever you are.
