The new Lean Library browser extension provides streamlined access to articles, journals and databases licensed by DML.

  • Install the extension
  • Select Georgetown University Medical Center – Dahlgren Memorial Library as your institution

After downloading, a pop-up message will appear when on websites containing licensed content.  A single click will take you to DML subscriptions.  If an item is not available, you’ll have the option to request via the DML Document Delivery Service.
