Introducing LibKey Nomad: Use This Plugin to Find Articles Quickly!

LibKey

Drake Library now subscribes to LibKey Nomad to make finding information faster and easier.  LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that makes finding full-text articles from certain websites (scholarly publishers, PubMed, Research Gate and Wikipedia, for example) simpler using fewer clicks.

What is LibKey Nomad? How do I install it?

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that links you to the full text of a scholarly article in Brockport’s library subscriptions. Install LibKey Nomad by going to https://libkeynomad.com, scrolling to the bottom of the page, and choosing your web browser. Note: LibKey Nomad does not currently work on mobile devices.

What happens when I install LibKey Nomad?

When you install the plugin, LibKey Nomad will activate only on certain websites (scholarly publishers, PubMed, Research Gate and Wikipedia, for example). When LibKey Nomad finds citation information, you’ll see a blue button with green flame pop up in the lower left corner of your web browser. Click this button to be directed to the full text or Interlibrary Loan.

No additional account is needed and Libkey does not store your information, making it an important tool for scholars.
