Lean Library Introduction

What is Lean Library?

University of Johannesburg Library proudly offers a brand new information accessing tool called LEAN Library.

Lean Library is a Library Access browser plug-in that allows you access to academic articles, books and other electronic resources, licensed by the UJ Library. If you start your search on Google or Google Scholar, the plugin will automatically link you to the full-text library resources. You will be prompted to sign in with your UJ credentials, when you reach an e-resource the library has access to.

Install the browser extension once and enjoy a simpler, faster way to get the full-text content.

Seamless Access:

  • Remote access to the UJ library Electronic Resources
  • Recognises the UJ library e-resources and then prompts you to authenticate

One login per browser session:

  • Once UJ authenticated, patrons can go about their research accessing the e-resources
  • Provides alternative legal routes to full-text articles and eBooks when you hit barriers
