Why use Lean Library Extension Browser
Many of us turn to services such as Google or Google Scholar when we have a question, so we naturally try to start our research there. This can cause some confusion when we perform academic research because Google doesn't know who is affiliated with the University of Johannesburg, especially when you are doing research off campus.
Because of this, websites found through search engines like Google will often ask you to pay for e-resources that the library already subscribes to.
With Lean Library you will be prompted to sign in when you reach an e-resource the library has access to, regardless of how you found the web page. Lean Library will also let you know if the e-resource you are currently looking at, is available on a different website, so you never miss a good research.
