LibKey (and other) Browser Plug-Ins

LibKey from BrowZine is a suite of tools that provides one click access to Library subscribed content.  Includes: LibKey Nomad, LibKey Link and LibKey.io.

Plug-ins are browser extensions that allow one click access to subscribed Library resources.  They include LibKey Nomad, Lazy Scholar, Access Anywhere, OneClick, Lean Library and the Google Scholar button.

All but LibKey Nomad will be blocked within the Health network due to security concerns, as most scrape up data from browsers and could compromise patient information. 

LibKey Nomad will only install on Edge version 83.0.478.50 or later.  It will also install on other Chromium browsers such as Chrome and Brave

Click to Add to Chrome (for any Chromium browser including Edge, Brave or Chrome).

A small green teardrop icon will appear in the top right hand side of your browser once LibKey Nomad is installed.

LibKeyNomad

What LibKey Nomad does:

  • consults Library holdings to determine if access is available
  • checks for available open access articles
  • if no subscribed access is available you will be linked to a document delivery request form.

Note that browser extensions, like bookmarklets, will not be 100% effective - you may still need to return to the Library's Journals A to Z listing to check for availability.  They will only work if the Library's access to a journal is via the interface you are viewing.
