The Lean Library Library Access Browser Extension allows you to easily access Penn Libraries' licensed content from your laptop or desktop computer when off-campus. Lean Library also offers a mobile app version called Academic Browser for iOS.
How it Works
Also when appropriate, a pop-up will appear that guides you to make an Interlibrary loan request through the Penn Libraries, if you wish.
