Library Access: free and immediate access to online resources


Library Access : téléchargez la dernière version

Library Access is a browser extension developed by Lean Library, which appears as a contextual window (pop-up window) to offer you a gateway to the full text document you want to read, regardless of the path you use to do your research.

It is triggered : 

  • because the University is subscribed to a platform that hosts the article you want,
  • because there is an open access version,
  • because it is possible to order it through interlibrary loan 
  • and many more possibilities!

To avoid overloading your pages for too long, messages automatically disappear after a few seconds.

Library Access also sets up Google Scholar to give you direct access to the full text of articles included in University subscriptions :

Library Access, a simple application which I use to access many newspapers. This allows me to cross quickly different perspectives to understand our wide and sometimes very strange world.

The Library Access extension makes my bibliographic research easier because it gives me access to articles or books on platforms that you might not think of! Even when I do an initial search on Google or go from site to site to find the full text,  a pop-up  appear whenever the extension is able to help me getting documentation I need!
