Lean Library Browser Extension

Trial information

The Library is offering a 30-day trial of the Lean Library browser extension which provides quick and simple access to digital content purchased by Dartmouth Library. Trial runs during October.

You can download the extension here:


What does the extension do?

The extension will automatically detect when you are on a website that contains content the library subscribes to.

For example, the extension will direct you to available full-text while you’re searching for articles in Google Scholar or looking for ebooks on a publisher’s site.

The extension may take a moment to respond while it is checking for access.

If the content you’d like to use doesn’t seem accessible, the extension will automatically check for open-access versions of the article or provide a DartDoc request link otherwise.

The extension also provides:

  • Article metrics from Scite_ for both Pubmed and Google Scholar
  • Subscribe to TOC (table of contents) links for journals in Google Scholar
  • Highlight text on a page and right-click and select the "Search@Dartmouth Library" to get citation results
