LibKey Nomad is a browser extension for Chrome which can help you identify quickly when an online article is available from the Library. When downloaded it provides links to full-text content held by the Library from publisher websites, Wikipedia, and PubMed.
How do I install it?
LibKey Nomad is currently available to download for your own device from the Chrome web store.
Click Add to Chrome and when prompted choose "University of Lincoln". Once the extension is installed you'll see a LibKey Nomad icon next to the menu in Chrome.
LibKey Nomad is currently available for personal devices only. It is not compatible with mobile devices.
How do I use it?
If you land on an article page on a publisher website and LibKey Nomad detects we should have access, you'll see a "Download PDF" alert at the bottom of the screen.
If you are off-campus you'll be prompted to log-in with your University of Lincoln credentials first.
If the article isn't available via the publisher you'll see an "Access Options" button instead, and will be redirected to either an alternative copy held by the Library, an open-access version, or to our inter-library service.
If you search for articles via PubMed you'll see LibKey Nomad links below each entry where the article is available.
When viewing the references at the end of a Wikipedia article you'll see LibKey Nomad links next to any article we have access to.
