LibKey Nomad: LibKey Nomad Browser Extension

A guide for installing the LibKey Nomad browser extension.

Download the LibKey Nomad Browser Extension

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that enables instant access to articles from journals subscribed to by UIW Libraries and Open-Access sources without the need to start your search from the library website. It provides a direct link to the article's PDF or HTML version. If access to the content is unavailable, LibKey Nomad will redirect you back to UIW Libraries and help you request an Interlibrary Loan.

To install LibKey Nomad, follow these steps:

  • Click on the LibKey Nomad link below.
  • On the LibKey Nomad page, scroll to the bottom and click on your preferred browser to download the extension.
  • Follow the download prompts, search for the University of the Incarnate Word as the organization, and pin the extension to your browser.
  • Start browsing. With the extension installed, LibKey Nomad will work in the background, providing access options as you search the web.
