Skip the pay walls and receive alerts when the Library has access to a resource with LEAN Library. This free browser extension allows you to take the Library with you and study smarter. 

LEAN Library will alert you when you're browsing online if the article, journal, e-book or database you're looking at is licensed by UEA Library. And a helpful pop-up will log you in instantly. 

If content is not available off-campus or you need to do something different to access it (e.g. login via Shibboleth, get a different password or register at the site), the LEAN Library pop-up will tell you that too.

On top of that, where UEA Library does not have access to a resource, LEAN Library will check if there's an OpenAccess version available, or will give you the option to try an Interlending request.

Lean Library just got even better!

Watch this short video for an overview of some changes which make LEAN even easier to use. These changes are now live in Chrome, Edge, Opera, Firefox and Safari.
