Access anywhere with Library Access

The Library Access browser extension provides quick and simple access to digital content, like articles and journals, licensed by TU Delft Library wherever and whenever you decide to work. You’ll have access whether you’re working abroad, in a neighbourhood coffee shop, or at home. Using Library Access improves your workflow because you spend less time searching for research material. You’ll have access with a few simple steps.

Download the Library Access browser extension
Want to use this free Library service? Download the extension. The Library Access browser extension works on desktops and laptops only and is available for Firefox and Chrome. Internet Explorer and Safari will become available soon.

Install the extension, select TU Delft under institution and you are ready to go.

After downloading, the extension will notify you when you’re on a website that contains licensed material. Then, it’s just a single click to open the site through the Library’s systems and get access to all licensed material on that site.

Access
The browser extension shows an icon in the bookmarks bar. It works almost like a traffic light. If the icon is green, then you have access. A grey icon means that access is prohibited. If the material you’d like to use doesn’t seem accessible, the browser extension will automatically check if there is an Open Access version available. If it is, it will present you with a pop-up message with direct access to the article.

What about my privacy?
By using the Library Access browser extension you will remain completely anonymous. The extension doesn’t collect any personal information unless you actively share it. And it doesn’t collect your IP address or your device’s unique device IDs either.
