Lean Library and Libkey Nomad have you covered

Do you love the ease of searching the web but value the quality and reliability of the library’s licensed information? Now you can have both.

Our new Lean Library and Libkey Nomad browser extensions deliver full text content to you regardless of which site you are on and without the need to go through Library Search.

Like to start your search with Google scholar? JSTOR? PubMed? No problem, library resources can now be delivered right into your research workflow.

These extensions will automatically detect if content you are viewing on any website (such as ebooks or journal articles) is included in ACU library subscribed resources. It will also check for open access versions. It then automagically gives you access.

These extensions reduce the frustration of hitting paywalls and being asked to pay for access to articles and books, while providing the convenience of immediate access from the webpage you are currently viewing.

How do they work?

In a matter of minutes you can unlock instant and legal access to academic content by installing one or both extensions today. Even better, they are paid for by ACU Library and free to you.
