LibKey Nomad: Get to the Full-Text Faster!

Have you ever found an article citation in Google Scholar or *gasp* Wikipedia, and wondered if the library had full-text access? Or perhaps a publisher has sent you links to some articles hot off the press and you just really wish you didn’t have to search for them via the library site to see if we have access? Great news–the St. Thomas Libraries have begun using a new tool called LibKey Nomad. And now that many of us find ourselves working from home, LibKey Nomad will make connecting to full-text access provided by the Libraries even easier!

LibKey Nomad is a browser add-on for Chrome that facilitates access to articles available from St. Thomas Libraries’ subscriptions without needing to go to the library website.  It’s like a shortcut to our GET IT service. And because it is a browser tool, you will know if an article is available before you have to log in to your University of St. Thomas library account. LibKey Nomad is currently only available for Chrome.

To start using LibKey Nomad, you will need to add the extension from the Chrome Web Store. Detailed instructions about installing LibKey Nomad and using it can be found in our LibKey Nomad library guide.
