LibKey Nomad

What is LibKey Nomad?

LibKey Nomad consults the UK Libraries holdings data to know if and where an article is available. If you use Google Chrome, you can install LibKey Nomad to the browser and access library collections (articles, journals, etc.) within one click. It even works when off campus!

LibKey Nomad also offers privacy safeguards, in that it:

  • doesn’t require a personal account;
  • doesn’t cache article requests or EZproxy credentials; and
  • is only active when a user is on the website of a scholarly publisher or database (i.e., PubMed, CINAHL).
