'Library Access': easy access to licensed content

Browsing the web for scholarly information? Download the Library Access browser extension to immediately see whether your library provides free access.

How does it work?

Library Access is a browser extension (add-on) that gives you simple and quick access to academic articles, journals and databases licensed by the library, wherever and whenever you decide to study.

When visiting a website with licensed material off-campus, Library Access will notify you with a pop-up giving you a link or a message about how to get access.
