LibKey Nomad

LibKey Nomand is a browser extension that directs users to UNH resources when they are available.



LibKey Nomad

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that connects users with library-licensed and open access full text articles. LibKey Nomad is available for most major browsers, including Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. When using LibKey Nomad, users are automatically directed to the best available version of an article so there is no need to search multiple places.

LibKey Nomad does not require the creation of a personal account, it does not track users or hold credentials, and it is only active when on the web page of a scholarly publisher or database.

Getting Started

  1. Install the LibKey Nomad extension for your browser of choice. (Note: A user account is not required to use the extension.)
  2. Search for and select "University of New Hampshire" from the list of institutions.
  3. When on the web look for the LibKey Nomad button to download PDFs on publisher websites, Wikipedia, PubMed, and more.




LibKey Nomad works with Wikipedia. When viewing the list of references for an entry, a "Download PDF" button will appear after the citations that full text is available for through the UNH Libraries. An "Article Link" button may appear for citations that are from sources that do not support linking directly to the PDF.



When searching PubMed, LibKey Nomad shows options for downloading a PDF, linking to an article, or additional access options, and you can view the cover images of the journals that articles appear in. LibKey Nomad also provides a link to the complete issue of a journal. This allows for browsing the table of contents for the issue in which an article appears, increasing discoverability of similar articles from the same publication.

Example of LibKey Nomad in PubMed. A journal cover image, links to download the PDF and view the complete issue, and access options are all circled.
