What is Lean Library?

A browser extension for access and assistance. You will spend less time figuring out if you have access to information and more time researching! 

How Lean Library Works?

When you access an article on a journal’s website or through a Google Search, the Lean Library extension recognizes OU Libraries’ e-resources then provides you with a GET ACCESS button that will authenticate your OU credentials for full text access.
