What is LibKey Nomad?

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that provides one-click access to the library's full-text resources and open-access journals while searching the web. 

LibKey Nomad is available on the following browsers:

  • Chrome
  • Edge
  • Firefox
  • Brave
  • Vivaldi
  • Safari

LibKey Nomad works by searching the webpage you are viewing for citations to scholarly articles (specifically the DOI or PMID number).  If a DOI or PMID is found, LibKey provides a button to seamlessly connect you to the full-text article if it is available.  If a full-text article is not available, please submit a request through Interlibrary Loan

LibKey Nomad and Privacy

LibKey Nomad links you to resources without requiring a personal account and ensures your privacy. There is no user tracking or storing your Ramlink credentials after you close your browser. Clicking on a LibKey Nomad link directs you to the Ramlink login and promptly grants access to the full-text article. Once you log in initially, there's no need to log in again until you close your browser.
