What is Lean Library?

The University of Lincoln Library has partnered with Lean Library so you now have the ability to easily find study materials wherever and whenever you decide to study.

Lean Library is a browser extension that works with our University of Lincoln library systems to give you seamless access when working off-campus.

Once downloaded, you'll be alerted via a pop-up message if you are looking for something that the Library can give you access to, including articles, ebooks, and other subscriptions.
