Lean Library (new as of Fall 2021)
This is a browser extension that makes it easy to get to all of your university's online resources, without having to worry about being logged in.
- To see how to install Lean Library, please look at the research guide
- Watch the 1.5-minute video on the Guide page 1
- Guide page 2 -- How to install it
- Guide page 3 -- A few more screen shots about what to expect
You can use my.jh.edu.
- This saves your JHED ID so that you're authenticated for all of our online resources
- This times out fairly often, though, so if you suddenly can't access something, go back and refresh it or log in again
See the instructions on this guide's Google Scholar + Google Books page.
Zotero's extension for Chrome
Zotero is a free software for managing references
- Zotero has a free Google Chrome extension, which appears on Chrome as a little clickable icon
- To save papers to Zotero directly: clicking the icon saves the citation data (e.g. journal, authors, title) and the PDF
- Zotero also allows export as a Bibtex file, which is useful when writing papers with LaTeX
- Once PDFs are saved to Zotero, just double-click on Zotero to access the PDF directly
Also, the plugin has a “reload via proxy” option -- this redirects articles as if you were accessing it through the library website, which makes it much easier to find articles quickly.
