Lean Library, a browser extension from SAGE Publishing that brings library services into a patron's workflow, has partnered with CORE to make it easier for users to find open access (OA) copies of articles. Utilizing CORE Discovery API, this collaboration not only strengthens plugin users' seamless connection to OA research, but also enables libraries to ease entry into an expanded pool of OA materials.
Employing CORE's dataset of millions of full-text OA papers, CORE Discovery API aggregates articles from thousands of OA data providers, such as repositories and journals, to help patrons find OA copies in reduced time.
This new partnership marks the expansion of Lean Library's ability to connect patrons to legal copies of OA materials. The browser extension also integrates Unpaywall's OA dataset and continues to seek additional reputable sources of OA material.
Lean Library provides software solutions to the library community, supporting researching accessibility and improving remote user experience. Connecting content to its user, Lean Library consists of three core products: Library Access, Library Assist and Library Alternatives.
