The Council of Chief Librarians (CCL), in cooperation with the Community College League of California, is pleased to announce a program to allow Community College Libraries to subscribe to Lean Library from SAGE Publishing.
Lean Library, now a SAGE company, delivers library services into your patron’s workflow wherever they are. Created by librarians for librarians, its browser plug-in solves access issues and provides patrons with content as and when they need it, all while protecting their privacy and promoting your library’s brand. Lean Library offers three solutions for common challenges librarians and patrons face. Together, these solutions drive usage of library resources while helping you get in front of your patrons with the right message at the right time:
• Library Access simplifies access to subscribed E-Resources for researchers, whether they are working on campus or at home
• Library Assist promotes your library’s value via a branded presence in your patrons’ browser and enables delivery of targeted communications directly into their workflow
• Library Alternatives provides alternative legal routes to discover full text when patrons hit barriers
