Only for desk- and laptops
Lean Library Access is not suitable for mobile devices, so it only works on desk- and laptops. The tool is primarily intended to gain access to Zuyd content at home, outside the Zuyd network. Within the Zuyd network, access is usually already arranged, but Lean Library Access can draw attention to 'open access' alternatives to articles that are not accessible via Zuyd
How does Lean Library Access work?
The browser extension displays an icon in the bookmarks bar. This works as follows.
If the icon is green, you are logged in. With a gray icon the extension is inactive.
If it is yellow, the extension has a message or tip for you.
You can download the extension for most browsers: Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Opera.
Please note: If you work on a Zuyd desk- or laptop, unfortunately it is not possible to add the add-on to Google Chrome. The Zuyd IT department does not allow adding extensions to the Zuyd version of Chrome.
