Key Resources

Important tools & services

Lean Library Browser Extension

Pop-ups are no-one's favorite, but what if I gave you a pop-up extension that will give you directions to full-text articles, ebooks, and more through the Dartmouth Library for any academic site? Allow me to introduce Lean Library. This plug-in works with Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. While the tool may be of assistance when on the Dartmouth network, it will be especially helpful when you aren't.

Step 1: Download and install the extension:

Step 2: Select Dartmouth College

Step 3: Start searching! Lean Library will let you know when you are on a website that the library has access to and will help you navigate access to the full text of articles, or direct you to DartDoc when appropriate.

Step 4: Login with your Dartmouth Single Sign-On

***Please note that Dartmouth Library is actively working on implementation of this new tool and there may be hiccups. If you encounter a problem, please let us know.

LibKey Nomad Extension

Do you get frustrated when you can't get access to an article? We do! That's why we have set up LibKey Nomad to provide a link to an article's full text! Simply install the extension in your browser, and access articles from publisher websites at the click of a button. Nomad works with Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Brave, Vivaldi & Safari.
