LibKey Nomad for quick access to full-text articles

LibKey Nomad is a free plugin for Google Chrome that helps you access scholarly journal articles. Once it knows you're affiliated with Emory, LibKey Nomad checks the web page of the article you're viewing to see if it's available at Emory. If it is, you'll see a graphic in the bottom left corner of your browser window that looks like this:

If Emory doesn't have the article, LibKey Nomad will also check open-access repositories and Unpaywall to see if there is another free and legal way to find it.

To install LibKey Nomad:

  1. Using Chrome, visit the Chrome Store page for the LibKey Nomad browser plugin.
  2. Click the "Add to Chrome" button.
  3. Chrome will ask whether or not you give the extension permission to operate:

If you choose to cancel, LibKey Nomad will not be installed.

4. If you add the extension, Chrome will open up a new tab that asks you to select which institution with which you're affiliated. Choose "Emory University" from the drop-down list:

 

Once you see the message above, you can close that browser tab. LibKey Nomad should now be functional.

As of fall 2019, LibKey Nomad is a new product. Our limited preliminary testing shows it works rather well. At the time of this writing, LibKey Nomad is supported for use with Google Chrome, but it may also work in other browsers that are based on the Chromium Projects. Neither Firefox nor Safari is currently supported.
