Finding online journal articles just got easier: Part III – LibKey Nomad Google Chrome browser extension
What if I told you there was a way you could download a .pdf file of a journal article we are subscribed to from a reference in Wikipedia or PubMed or hundreds of other Scholarly Publisher Websites?
Imagine if Wikipedia pages looked like this:
Or your PubMed results screen could look like this:
These links appear thanks to a new free feature in BrowZine called LibKey Nomad. It is a Chrome browser extension that identifies our subscribed scholarly content from anyone on the web. You can get to it in one-click, whether it is from a publisher, aggregator or open access source.
Last week we told you about BrowZine and if you’ve not used it yet, checkout out the first part of the blog here. If you’ve already got started with BrowZine here’s what you need to do to get the Google Chrome browser extension.
You’ll be able to download the extension from the Chrome Web Store. You’ll find it here https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/libkey-nomad/lkoeejijapdihgbegpljiehpnlkadljb
Click on the blue “Add to Chrome” button and then “add extension” on the popup box.
When you first add the extension, you will have to sign in to CCCU. Just select Canterbury Christ Church University from the select Institution drop down box and then sign in. If you’re on campus you’ll be immediately signed in.
Now, whenever you are on a supported site that has scholarly content we subscribe to, look out for the Download PDF box.
