Library browser extensions make life easier

As a student or researcher, you have access to a large number of databases and publications. Accessing this information can sometimes be a challenge.

We offer two browser extensions to make this process easier:

Each extension has its own purpose. Install them both for maximum convenience.  If you decide to install only one extension, we recommend installing the Library Access extension. It offers the most diverse and comprehensive features to enhance your search experience.


The table below provides a comparison of the functionality offered by the extensions.
