Doing field research or working on your article at home? Looking for e-journals or reviews you want to cite in your publication? Download the free Library Access browser extension and access online information resources (databases and e-journals) whenever, wherever you are.

Easy access

The Library Access browser extension lets you access academic articles, journals and databases licensed by WUR Library, wherever you are and whenever you need it. Install the browser extension and enjoy a simpler, faster way to get access.

How to install Library Access?

The browser extension is available for Chrome, Firefox, MS Edge, Opera and Safari. It requires a ‘once only’ installation process of two mouse clicks on your laptop or PC.  

To install Library Access please visit the Lean Library website:

Install the extension and select ‘Wageningen University and Research' and the extension icon will pop-up and notify you when you are on a website that the Library has a subscription for.

How does it work?

The plug-in will automatically detect when you are on a website that contains content WUR Library subscribes to. If you are off-campus or if you're using wireless access, you may be prompted to log in with your WUR credentials. Once you are logged in, the extension icon will glow green if the Library provides access.
