Is there a tool for one-click access to online articles?


All University of Leicester staff and students have access to a digital tool called LibKey Nomad, which can help speed up the way you access some online material such as journal articles.

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension which you can download for any major browser on your own device. Once downloaded, you will need to select the University of Leicester as your institution. Having done that, LibKey Nomad will automatically activate in a range of webpages and search engines including Google Scholar, Wikipedia, PubMed, as well as many publisher sites.



When you see the LibKey Nomad logo, you can click on it to either access a full-text PDF of the item or see further access options. This will allow you to quickly view items which we subscribe to, or which are available through open access initiatives.
