How do I use LibKey Nomad to access articles?


LibKey Nomad is a free browser extension that connects you to PFW-subscribed content on publishers' sites and scholarly web databases, like Google Scholar. 

Download LibKey Nomad for your browser and choose "Purdue University Fort Wayne" from the drop-down menu. If the library has access to the full-text PDF of the article or citation you are viewing on one of these sites, a button to download the PDF will appear on the bottom, left-hand corner of your browser:

Or an "Access Options" button may appear, clicking on which will take you to a catalog search with any PFW access options, including document delivery. 

Without LibKey Nomad, publishers' sites may require you purchase the article to view or download it, regardless if the library has access to it or not.
