Lean Library: How it works

How Lean Library works

 

Lean Library browser extension will provide access to full text where the Library has a subscription.
Where full text access cannot be fulfilled from our subscription resources, Lean Library searches for a legal Open Access alternative. 

*Please note that not all publisher content will be available via Lean Library. If you have a query, please email eresources

 

Once Lean Library is installed on your browser, you will be guided to check for full text availability by the pop up.
If we have access, you will be prompted to input your QUB login credentials and full text access will be granted. 

 

 

Where full text is not available, you will see the option for Requesting an Inter Library Loan
*Please note that the procedure for requesting Inter Library Loans varies according to your user category.
