A browser extension that provides seamless access to Penn Libraries subscriptions from anywhere on the web.
The Lean Library Access extension provides quick and simple access to digital content provided by Penn Libraries.
Download the extension and it will automatically detect when you are on a website that contains content the library subscribes to.
The gray extension icon will turn green if the library provides access. If you are off campus or using wireless access, you may be prompted to log in with your PennKey credentials.
If the content you’d like to use doesn’t seem accessible, the extension will automatically check for open-access versions of the article or provide a link to interlibrary loan.
