Libkey Nomad ( Plug-in for Chrome)

What is Libkey Nomad?

LibKey Nomad from Third Iron, is a browser plugin for Google Chrome that links our Article Quick Search service to publisher web sites to show when the Library has access to an article, and if not, to point you to other ways to access the article. You can search journal literature directly from the web and still have access to most of UML library subscriptions. Libkey Nomad does not currently work with Jstor. 

Libkey Nomad integrates directly into PubMed, providing PDF download buttons and journal cover images in result lists. Libkey Nomad is currently available only for Google Chrome. Follow the instructions below to install and use Nomad. 

Libkey Nomad does not collect your personal information, so it is safe, when prompted, to give permission to change data on sites you visit.
