LibKey Nomad General Information

What is LibKey Nomad?

LibKey Nomad is a free browser extension that can connect you to journal articles and eBooks in Himmelfarb Library’s collection. LibKey Nomad works with multiple sources including PubMed, Scopus, Google Scholar, Web of Science, and Wikipedia as well as with scholarly publishers' websites. LibKey Nomad immediately delivers a PDF if one is available, and will otherwise provide you Himmelfarb full-text and document delivery options. 

LibKey Nomad provides a 'Download PDF' link as the first option, and if that's not possible will provide other full-text links and Documents2Go document delivery options via Himmelfarb Library.  LibKey Nomad can also connect you to a table of contents for the specific issue to allow you to explore that issue for related items, and it can alert you to retracted articles in your search results.

Accessing LibKey Nomad

To download LibKey Nomad, install the appropriate extension for your browser from the Google Chrome Web Store, the Apple Mac App Store for Safari, Mozilla Firefox browser Add-ons, or Microsoft Edge Add-ons. The Google Chrome extension is also compatible with Brave and Vivaldi. After you install the extension, choose ‘George Washington University – Himmelfarb Library’ as your institution. LibKey Nomad will now be integrated into your web browsing.
