LibKey Nomad is a Chrome browser extension that facilitates access to library and Open Access resources. The extension:
- Provides one-click access to articles the library subscribes from both journal publishers and database aggregators like EBSCO and ProQuest
- Uses Unpaywall (which also has a browser extension) and other sources to identify and lead to Open Access articles
- Links you to the library's Resource Sharing site to request articles not available through the library's subscriptions
- Uses the library's standard authentication method so no credentials are cached in your browser, which some tools do.
Install the extension from the Chrome web store. During the installation process, you'll be asked to identify your library. Search for The Claremont Colleges Library, rather than your college name.
