Keeping Up With the Librarians

NEW - Lean Library: Access library content wherever you are!

by Alexis Soard on 2022-03-29T09:47:00-07:00 in General & multidisciplinary | 0 Comments

We're excited to offer you our new library research tool, Lean Library!

Lean Library works within your browser to help identify library content wherever you are on the Internet. Trying to do your research on Google or Bing (no judgments, we've all done it)? No problem. Lean Library will identify articles or books we have in the library as you click on the results and provide you with a link to the full text of that item.

It's that easy.

We've also included links to some of our more popular journals, like Harvard Business Review and The Washington Post, so you won't get stuck with the free article limits imposed by some sites.

And, if you're on Google Scholar, you'll find a pop-out on the side of your browser that takes you to our Ask Us service, FAQs, and How Do I guides in case you get stuck and need help researching your topic.

Want to take advantage of this free library service?

You can download it at: It's available for the most frequently used browsers.

Once installed, select your institution, and you're ready to go.

What about my privacy?

By using the Lean Library extension, you will remain completely anonymous. It doesn't collect any personal information unless you actively share it. And it doesn't collect your IP address or your device’s unique device IDs. If you want to know more, you can view the extension's privacy statement.
