In general, whether on or off campus, if you start your research from the library landing page, you’ll be prompted to log in if a book or article is behind a paywall. Sometimes we end up outside of the UBC Library ecosystem though and next thing you know you’re being asked to pay for an article. Fear not. Install the LeanLibrary plugin.


No matter where you are on the web, if the LeanLibrary plugin detects that you’re looking at a book or an article, it will ask if you would like to access that resource through UBC Library. It’s that simple.
