LibKey Nomad




As a student researcher, the first place you normally search for content for your papers and projects is the library's research databases and online catalog.

But there may be times, of course, when you're out on the Web and find a citation(s) for usable content (ex. articles indexed in Google Scholar, references at the bottom of a Wikipedia article). So the library recommends you use a software product called LibKey Nomad.

Once LibKey Nomad is added to your browser, it automatically detects citations on webpages and labels those which you have full-text access to through the library. The label is a clickable link which will lead you to the full-text content.
