Lean Library: Web-browser extension

Find the Full-Text Faster

The URI Libraries now offer the "Lean Library"  (formerly "Library Access") web-browser add-on!

  • This add-on has been fully customized for the use of URI students, faculty, and staff.
  • It presents available access options (including open access and inter-library loan), whenever one navigates to a webpage with licensed content behind the paywall, whether it is an online database, a scholarly article, or an e-book. 

Download and install the "Lean Library" add-on to make the best use of the URI Libraries' licensed resources during your research and study!


  • Check out the examples below to see how this add-on works!
