Goodbye Lean Library - hello LibKey

ACU’s institutional subscription to Lean Library ceased at the end of 2023.

If you are a Lean Library user, don’t panic! We have a very similar product, LibKey, which you can install now and experience many of the services that were available from Lean Library.

We recommend that users of Lean Library uninstall the Lean Library extension (and install LibKey instead), as pop ups may continue to appear, but you won’t be able to access content.

So, what is LibKey?

Libkey is a free browser extension that makes the research process simple. When installed, you don’t have to use Library search to gain access to resources. Simply start your search for information in your preferred browser (we know lots of you love Google). When you find articles or journals, the LibKey button will appear giving you options to access the full content via ACU library - free and legally. No more finding the best article ever, only to be asked to pay for it.

In addition, allows you to search for articles by DOI or PubMed ID for fast access.

Visit our handy Search tools site to find out more about LibKey and how to use it, or simply install it now.
