Browser Extension for One-Click Access to Articles

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that can direct you to full text from the Library as you research online. LibKey Nomad searches for articles and citations in the Library’s resources and gives you a direct link to full text when available. It works with websites like PubMed, UpToDate, Google Scholar, publisher pages, and more! If the Library does not have the full text of an article, you will be able to ask the library to get a copy.

NOTE: Best used if you have a dedicated workstation. If you use follow-me desktop (badge access) to get on a computer, you may need to reinstall or repair this extension because it won't follow your profile.
