Off-campus access

with Lean Library, via website & proxy
Lean Library
Lean Library

If you want access to e-books, e-journals, all other digital resources and services of the library, from OUTSIDE the UMCG / RUG network, we advise to:

  • use the LeanLibrary extension in your browser to ensure access to the digital library. It triggers the prox-login when needed, redirect you to the correct full-text access, open access alternatives and more.
  • Please note: 'UMCG Anywhere' and the Next Gen laptops do NOT automatically give access to our digital collection.

  • It is always good to start at the CMB library website. All the resources and pages have links that also trigger the proxy-login. (this is a good alternative, when not using the Leanlibrary extension.)
  • You can also login into the proxy-server beforehand.
  • For mobile devices, use the Connect-button (see below)
