A browser extension for access and assistance. You will spend less time figuring out if you have access to information and more time researching!
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.
Open the download link and add the extension to your browser. Select University of Oklahoma from the dropdown menu and click on Save.
The Research Help Desk is where you can get research assistance from University Libraries' Peer Research Mentors and Graduate Research Assistants. The Research Help Desk is located in Bizzell Memorial Library on the main floor in the Loveridge Computer Lab. At the Research Help Desk, OU Libraries' student employees will assist you with your research questions, while also helping you become more comfortable and confident navigating the OU Libraries' website and databases.
To promote social distancing and to maintain a safe atmosphere for the OU community, it is recommended that you make an appointment with the Research Help Desk's graduate research assistants before coming to Bizzell Memorial Library.
