Session description

This is an online training session for Lean Library, designed to give you a quick and simple introduction to this fantastic tool. The Lean Library browser extension is a browser plugin for users of an academic or research library. It makes library services available right in the users' workflow, where and when they are needed, making use of those services more seamless and convenient. Lean Library consists of three components; Library Access, Library Assist, and Library Alternatives.

The current available sessions are: Tuesday 30th April 2019, 1pm-2pm BST, and Tuesday 18th June 2019, 10am-11am BST.

The webinar is open to anyone to attend – library staff, faculty members, researchers, and students – whether you're simply curious to find out more and how it could help at your institution, your institution is currently on a trial, or you already have a subscription and want an introduction or some refresher training. The webinar will cover:
