Third Iron: Browzine and LibKey: LibKey Nomad: Getting Started

What is LibKey Nomad?

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that provides one-click access to available library resources even when you're not searching through the library's webpage. For instance, once Nomad is setup in your browser, if you go directly to a participating publisher's site, and UK Libraries offers access to that resource, a Download PDF button will appear in the bottom left corner of the screen. That PDF will be provided through UK Libraries' access to the resource, but you will not have to go to the UK Libraries homepage. LibKey Nomad also provides links to library resources within PubMed, Wikipedia, Web of Science and Scopus.
